As yet my Sky Runner has been had all electronics swapped and ailerons installed. Now it's time for the FPV side of things. Usually I'd just glue components onto the airframe where ever seemed best but because the Sky Runner has a pod area just like that of an Easystar and other models I thought I try make a "mini pod".
The big advantage of a single contained pod unit is the easy removable at any time to replace or upgrade etc. Although because this will be my main nano FPV kit now I may replace the 4 gram weight on the tail with a 8 gram GPS for OSD (On Screen Display) more towards the center of the fuselage giving me even more data and the ability to set-up a tracker.
This is going to be my full time mini FPV plane because it boasts so much potential, as you can see in the video it has plenty of power (I can even do a belly take- off from the ground). Gliding its a little nose heavy so maybe 5 grams on the tail would be best. Because I want tracking for this it'll have GPS eventually, GPS chips generally weigh 8 grams so this could become my new tail weight by moving it further up the fuselage.
