RCM, have you got a WDR cam (similar to the one you wanna use in your reaper) I can measure? I've done the base plate, and I've done the dome (bar the slot for the lens). I just need the cam dimensions so I can finish up. I think you said it was 36mm square centres for the mounting holes. Are the holes 3mm? I also need the lens diameter and total length (from the back of the board to the lens) if you can't be bothered to measure it just bring one down to the field tomorrow .

good turn out at Twickenham
Only myself Wayne and Alfred held up the FPV side of things.
Alfred managed a few loops with his quad, plus scared a few guys as well

I had nothing ready to fly.

On again in two weeks time.

Wow.. that was quick! I will bring the one today as I am not sure what dimensions you really need. I said the board can be cut down to 32mm square. hope this is not a problem...

Nice. Glad you got enough footage, it was hart breaking to hand back your wing and tell you the card was full.





So, after a massive brain fart yesterday and me just talking at Alfred for an entire journey I changed my plans again last night and put in another large BEVRC order. Of course this morning I've woken up and realised what I've forgotten.

Is anyone planning on ordering from BEVRC soon? If so could you add a Skywalker glass fibre skid for me please?

Lol. Oh dear. Ask RCM, I just spoke with him and I think he's doing an order for the reaper soon.
