This is an excellent motor glider

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.
