Just bought my cam, but have Questions

So I just picked up a Largan L330 3.4mp CCD w/ 6.6 interpolated mode for $120 @ Fry's

Here's the weight info minus 2 AA batteries and SD card

138 gram = 4.8678067 ounce

Dimensions are

3.99" (W) x 2.17" (H) x 1.44" (D)

What powerplant, prop, battery (Lipoly), and ESC do you guys recommend? I would like it to fly very smoothly and still maintain good slow speed characteristics.

Thanks for the help,

Whats the wingspan of you camera. Or are you going to send it up in a RC plane. IF you are going to use a RC plane what did you have in mind.

Well my camera doesn't have a wing I was going to use a Slow Stick, sorry if I didn't mention this. I'm up for buying a brushless motor that $80 or cheaper using lipolys for juice. I'm guessing my takeoff weight will fall around 25 ounces. Will I need a wing support like the one you have illustrated in another thread Bar-Stool? Thanks for the help.

Wing support would be a good idea for that much weight. An alternative to the compression strut is flying wires attached to (and across) the landing gear. I believe JMH is using flying wires if you want to have a search for it.

Brushless options are Razor (use the GWS gearbox/pinion), MiniAC 1215/16 (will need to drill pinion or use aftermarket GB), Astro 010, or a PJS-5xx, -800, or Nippy Black 1812/100. The last few are outrunners, no gearbox required. The Astro is probably the wimpiest of the bunch, but it doesn't need as big a battery, so it may yet work out. The others will give ~ 1:1 thrust/weight.

Figure $70-90 for the motor alone. Brushless ESC/BEC will run an additional $70 or so. Full throttle draw will be up to or over 18 amps depending on gearing, prop, and number of lipo cells, so a 2100 or 2p 1500 might be needed.

I just picked up my Slow Stick (backordered) and a 2cell eTech 1200mah pack. The hobby shop has a Mini 1216 brushless for sale. If I was to get this what GB and Prop would be recommended? Thanks Again
