Well my hatcam worked but couldnt be sure where it was pointing so made this adapter for my glasses and it works quite well. An adapter would make a nice 3d printer project as mine is a little heavy.

Video is some noodling around with my new plank wing. Flew over 12 minutes with many takeoffs on a 2200mah lipo. Going to see if I can break 20 minutes on a single flight.

Finally after screwing up the fuselage angle and flying a loop which forced me to dive for the ground to avoid being hit,I got it flying. It takes very little powerfor takeoff and cruise and is easy to control.
The video is just a few cuts of takeoffs because my hatcam was askew and I took picutures of empty space.

Working on a plank using 9mm epp foam laminated with copyshop laminate and it also has a carbon fiber pole frame and spar. Should be stout enough yet still plenty light. I tried to make it without the front middle section but just couldnt get enough weight forward to balance. Now have lots of space to play with cg. Also it is a prop in the slot configuration as if that is not obvious. Should be very noisy but I'm in china where it is already noisy.Going to add a vertical stab on this one. I love how planks fly.
