    If you want to see unpowered gliders, suggest you go to Bedok Reservoir on weekends. The expats and experts there will be flying their scale gliders...

    Here's a picture I took of a 4m wingspan one.

    You can see how they mount the camera and the results

    BTW, a gas plane may not be too good to put a camera on, as the vibrations will be *very* strong!

    kingpin, I'm one of those there on Saturday mornings too

    Wah... very good site man... thanx for the lead f55 I agree with you, the vibration will pose a problem... but hey... that's the kind of challenge we clubsnappers like right Anyway, I'm sure someone out there will have the answer... I just need to keep my plane in one piece

    Well, if handling of real choppers are anything to judge by, it may not be easier to control an RC chopper. You definitely get the advantage of hovering, but you'd have to control multiple factors at the same time, I should gather.
