Default Super Cub & Kodak Easy Share Camera

Did my first flight after using zip ties to attach the camera to the bottom of the plane. This was only my 10th flight with the cub so I had a little problem flying it especially in the turns.....

Heres how I used the zip ties. Its tail heavy this way but I was too lazy and didn't want to remove the ties each time I changed the battery.

Are you running the stock 7-cell battery and electronics when you have the camera attached?

Looks like it worked fine. I would recommend pointing the camera forward or at least to the side if you need to. You will be happier with the result. It is hard to stay focused on the oscillating ground, and creates a very small field of view. Thanks for sharing.

Yea I know what you mean. I guess I was just happy that it worked. lol.
I gave up on the Kodak camera and am experimenting with the CVS camcorder now. I've had good luck attaching it to the side of the plane.
