The clipped wing easy star

This is a hand me down plane from SPG which I have clipped the wings and installed a simple setup for FPV Hoon'n

Build stats:

Plane - Multiplex Easy Star
Prop - 6 X 5
Motor - Turnigy B2835-2200
ESC - RCSmart 30A
CRx - Dragonlink
VTx - 5.8Ghz 200mw
Battery - Turnigy 2600mah
Camera - Foxtech FH-20c

I didn't take any measurements but basically started trimming the tips off the wings till the amount of turn up at the tip was minimised till I was happy with flying speed and manouverability

Awesome plane with this kind of mod. Just watch the video below and check out the pics.

The CRx is inside the body cavity with an access flap cut into the bottom of the body.

All the video gear fits inside the canopy cavity and a hole put through for the antenna. The camera is mounted on a broken Fatshark tilt plastic and glued in place.

I also make use of a battery cell monitor for a sort of OSD pushed through the tip of the nose in front of the camera.

I mount a micro Keychain HD camera with hook & Loop tape in front of the voltmeter for video recording.

The Mr_B Weekend Clip flown with Dragon Link (3 min 10 sec)

BTW : boingk @ has a nice starter kit which is a simple cheap way to start in the fpv flying.
