The war on crazy camera designs

Camera mount #4 was probably the last attempt to use The Sanyo's tripod head. Made the camera table smaller and made a fillet to overcome the cockeyed lens. Making a balsa fillet to tilt the lens down was brutal.

With 5 more days of rain expected and no calm winds during the day time, tried to fly it at night just to see how stable it was. Ended up with 20mph wind at night but even with the wind it was obvious.

The Sanyo may be too heavy for The Corona to fly stable with it. The next possibilities are eliminating The Sanyo's battery and eliminating
the camera mount, but it doesn't look good for high definition from space.

After unhitching the camera table, did 24 min of flying before the rain started on the 3300mAh. The wind got calmer once the camera was off, of course.
