my 48" EPP flying wing has payload capacity about 300gram
I'm thinking of converting it into biplane to carry heavier cameras

todays test show the biplane wing completely flyable

Cool! I do believe you are an engineer! Can't wait to see the wing you build from this proto type!

today we tested new type diversity RX that also know to give priority to one of the transmitters when both RSSI good. When one of multiple pilots sets throttle higher than rest it will have full control of model
Friend of mine flew the plane and without saying a word he will lower or turn off his throttle so I can continue piloting

such setup replaces body box and doubles range of FPV flown planes cause pilot can be miles apart.

here is my AP plane - it folds into bacpack.
Panasonic LS85 held by single screw in it's original mount and can rotate 360

Well done, maybe more people will finally start seeing that they should be using wings ;-)

More wind = more shots more of the time ;-)

true, when windy it easier to control flying wing
about noon (3 hours ago) after seeing smoke cloud in my area I flew the AP wing to check it out, look at the smoke and guess how strong the wind was for 20gram brushless pushing Panasonic LS85 and 2200mAh Lipo

I ship from Israel.
the stabilizer was much improved since my last post here
now the chip has 2nd PPM input to make diversity or share one plane between two pilots that can be miles apart
I'm working on UI so one can configure the chip without C-compiler just by pushing setup button, theat is servo reversing, aileron/elev swapping and gyro sensivity. The stabilizer will be available in few days.

Cool video! It looks like the tail end of a 747 without the plane! Sure is windy there. I watch all your videos. Too good not to!
