Twinstar2 - new Cammount Idea

Hi fellow FPV friends!

On my search for a better way to mount a conventional digital still camera on my Twinstar2 RC plane I came to this solution:

This should minimize the air drag (which can definitly be an issue - I learnd this before!)
The position of the cam, facing down left, should give me great flight videos - stay tuned for the first tests!

This way works not so well (but the perspective would be great also):

The weather wasn't good enough to fly so I had to have some winterfun on the ground.

Twinstar 2 with flaps

This weekend I finally installed real flaps to my TS2. I crashlanded the second flight (with no damage) because of a stall - but after some getting used to the flaps can be a great improvement when it comes to slow gliding with a heavier plane or on the landings (with full flaps the bird gets really slow and will decend quickly - short landings).

Total weight now: 1684g (with battery, 2cams, Video TX, 2 additional batteries for cams).
