That takes the fun out of building but Iv been tempted many times... Maybe ill build a Heptad/glider hybrid since I dont need the weight of the HEPTAD and I dont want the prop in front of me like a glider... not sure... maybe a glider with big enough wings to put the cameras in...

Just joking, but if you look, the majority of fpv planes have their camera up front. The Bixler, zephyr, just to name some popular ones.

As long as I don't land up-side-down, or hit a tree head on, I should be good. The nose is re-enforced with lots of hot glue, tape and coroplast.

The only issue I think I may have is with my FPV camera off to the side. It may have a negative effect such as drag, or disrupting the props airflow. One more LOS test flight will answer that question though.

Many people are using similar designs for fpv but with smaller wingspan. How match wingspan does this one has? I am thinking of building one of these. We are waiting your maiden and the first footage

Nice job! I can't wait to see how it flies. I may have to build one of those if it does well.

Remember the wing called SEXY
Several people asked to create a build thread about it. I would if there is enough interest. The plane deserves it. I am having great time with it. It is capable of carrying all the fpv stuff including gopro and two 8000mAh batteries.
It can spend easily more than an hour in the air if you do not get bored before. I am building another 2 SEXYs.
If I get at least 20 PMs stating just one word: SEXY, i will start the thread, including plans, pictures, so everybody can build it. Be aware - the wing is not easy to build. Once done though, you would be surprised how well and stable it is.

I'd be interested. Could the wings be cut from foam?

I bet the wings are actually sheeted foam cores.
