YC-14 Camera Nose

October 15, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

Last night I started working on the new dome nose setup for the YC-14.

The B fold method makes for a strong design but damn very boxy.

I need to learn how to make curves. I do have a plan to better surround the ring.


But the GoPro has a nice full view of the world now.


It is supported on a sliding try.


Which will be secured with skewers.


The section might be a touch long but I will know after I’ve inserted the collar onto the YC-14 itself.


I will also construct a top section which can be removed to access the camera.


I’ve ordered a metal geared servo so I can actually steer the plane and taxi rather then hand launch.


More development shortly.


The length also leaves room for future FPV gear.
