The answer for the mission is at the end. If you dont want to see the answer be ready for it.


I made a change to the camera via the radio. On my 5 ch RX, I could only use camera or flaps. I changed the RX to a 6 ch, and now can use flaps and the camera. I didnt like using Ch 6 because it was on a three position switch, so I just slaved 6 to 7 on the Polk TX which is a dial. That allows me to use the dial to control the lens of the camera on ch 6. Smoother camera angle changes is nice. After you count airplanes, notice the stress relief strap on the tail wheel failure!

I hope you enjoy!

Thanks Kosh,

It was fun to make for sure. I'm kind of checking out the differences in video production between my Mac and PC. Still dont know which I like better...
