More tail rotor terrorism

So camera mount #3 was the simplest mount so far. A single balsa sheet with battery on one side and camera on the other. This resulted in the
most unstable flying so far. That made normal copter flying seem like balloon flying. The gyroscope was oscillating constantly. Cyclic was
all over the place. Yaw was highly decoupled from the camera mount.

That ended in another tail rotor failure. This time the camera kept going long enough to capture the death spiral. This time the set screws held but the tail servo failed. New servo: $20.
