Giant Size 3-D Camera Plane

What do think of a giant size AP plane. Well last summer I built a giant size 3D airplane and it has room in the battery dept to put my Optio S Just think I could take pictures when I hover at inches above the ground or rocket up to 10000 ft in seconds even take pictures inverted. Want a straight down shot just do a knife edge. Just thinking you know those long cold Minnesota winters. Current weather - 5 degrees F and 15 MPH winds gusting to 25 MPH

Nice plane !!! What kit/model is it ?? It's a nice 69~71 degrees here in Phoenix AZ. Still gets a little chilly during the nights in the 40's~50's.

So what is your secret to seeing your plane at 10000 ft as you stated

I scratch built it one stick at a time. Had no plans just built it.
I can see it at 10000 ft from a 8000 ft hill. ( I hope )

Who says you can't have it all?
What power system are you using?
Impressive bit of work. Those long
cold winters are good for something!

Hi Roger,

Wow nice scratch you have there! Reminds me of the Airwave Sukhoi 3D a friend of mine flies with a B20-15L on 3S1P TP2100.

The plane does a great elevator manuever as well as a true upright flat spin so it should be no problem orientating the plane for a shot in a confined area.

Curious, what are those two large cutouts on the upper fuse for?

Here is it next to my Airwave Sukhoi.
The slots you see are hand holes thay are used to carry it and to
hand launch also I found out thay work good to catch it when you are hovering in front of you.

Motor is Hacker B40-8 4.4-1

Nice work Mr. BAR-STOOL, very impressive scratch built.

I didn't think anything was as high as 8,000 ft AGL in your state.....
