Old GWS Pico Tiger Moth, FPV Mod


I added a small all-in-one FPV camera to the cockpit of an old GWS Pico Tiger Moth. The camera has its own 1S battery, and the Tiger Moth runs on a 2S LiPo. I upgraded the motor from a geared brushed motor to brushless.

Nice landing.

I'm using a RMRC Cricket Cam (AIO). I had replaced the screws that hold the wings on with bamboo skewers because the screws never held anyway. So I glued the camera to a bit of styrofoam that also has a skewer through it. Then, rubber band over the camera mount skewer and around the wing mount skewers hold things in place. I'm using a separate 1s lipo (from an Inductrix) to power the camera so the little FPV module is self-contained and easily removed/replaced.
