Be on the lookout for this cool motor glider being reviewed in up coming issues of MAN. It is a heavy hauler with a huge camera platform for either shooting below the fuselage or by mounting a pan/tilt on top. No prop to interfere with photography either. The design is excellent with regard to CG. In my early flights I had the camera pointing down and through the fuselage. Later versions have a 4.5 ounce pan/tilt system from Servo City. All I had to do was reduce from a 2550 mAh battery to a 1300 mAh 11.1v LiPo. Perfect balance and a pretty good trade off for weight.
