Thanks for the pic Teamsherman. I still don't see where your camera mounts, but I assume you are talking about on top of your fpv camera pan and tilt. Seems to be the downside of the Bixler compared to a Skywalker or similar is it's ability to carry a larger camera. A gopro looks huge when sat on the front of a bixler.

Can anyone recommend a good place to to purchase rubber bands for Skywalker wings in Brisbane? I've grabbed some from office works before but they are too wide, I end up trimming them down and that gets boring pretty fast.

Penguin FPV maiden


Finally FPV'd the Penguin.... Thx to Chris for mentioning some CG issues.

Nothin to rave about... Just another FPV maiden. It was pretty blowey but Youtube has cleaned it up pretty well.

After some serious CG alteration (not as per factory) and some fiddling with ele setup and rudder mix it flys pretty nice now.

Enjoy

Penguin at the Farm. (5 min 50 sec)

Crazy Clarks get that pack of like 200 assorted rubber bands for $4 they should have a few that fit. Other wise office works is probably your best bet. I'm gonna go have a look at the big model store here in ipwich here soon so I'll let you know if they have any if you want.
