Hi Phil, ive already cut my canopy and glued on some wood as a base for the camera & mount to mount to, sorry to hear bout your crash, is yours still stock? Mine is brushless with a 4200mah lipo, ive run it for 20 mins + with lots of life left and brought it back down to watch my nephew learn to fly.
How did your twinstar cope with the extra weight? I've shed a lot of weight doing the brushless conversion so hopefully it will be ok, i'd like to add a pan servo too.
Im going to change the plugs for the motors and servos for a 6 pin plug, mines a bit messy too.
One question, my camera came with an auto iris 3.5 - 8mm f1.4 lense, would that help with light contrasts? can i alter the FOV to the same degree you have on yours?
