Great video Speedster, thanks for sharing.

I really like the look of the wing mounted camera pods too, do you have any photos of that you could share please?

I have a Mobius camera which would fit I think.
Did you have to rebalance the glider or make any major trim changes?

Thanks for any information in advance.

The Mobius holder is made of 10 mm balsa, 34 cm long and 10 cm high

You can put a counter weight on the other wing, but normally only a few click on the trim is ok on a 2,5 meter plane.

I have flown it on a Lidl glider but on such a small glider a counter weight is nice,

 

Cheers

I might just have to steal it too!

Very effective in the video but simple to make.

Just do that smiley

I think it is a bit better than just tape it to the wing, as here on my 5 meter Carrera SB10

Cheers

Hi Soren

Did you use the Mobius for the SB10 video too?, the quality is really good and It looks like a great slope site.

Did you need to use a wide angle lens, C2 I think it is called, or are the videos with the standard A type lens?

Thanks

Shaun

I got the Mobius from Banggood and it was a "New version" I don't know what lens it has.

I think it is the Mobius on the video, but it could also be my old Gopro Hero.
