Good e-sailplane recommendation needed for Aerial Photography


Is there a good RTF electric sailplane that can hold a good amount of weight? I'm thinking up to 7-8 ounces, maybe 5-6 if I can scale things back a bit.

Any suggestions will be very appreciated.

i'd check the aerial photography forum for the best answer but the multiplex easystar, EZglider, or cularis would not be a bad place to start looking. the easystar is a fairly common platform for starting out.

good luck!

Just a thought... rather than having a glider capable of carrying a normal camera, what about using a wireless "pinhole" camera? A laptop on the ground could then receive the images from it and take snapshots when appropriate.

.. because the image quality would suck.

You can, however, use wireless video to frame your shots, however, as most camera's also have a video-out connection. As stated, this belongs in the AP forum..
