    Twin boom pusher is a good way to go, Skyhunter models are the most popular of the lot. If you have the propeller in front of the camera it causes "zebra effect", the propeller disturbs the image some. Tailless pusher planes like the Joker and the Zephyr tend to have issues with staying nice and stable, short tailed planes like the mini-talon work ok but are pretty limited on how much motor weight you can put on the tail, twin motor planes work well at the expense of a small amount of extra weight, low wing pod and boom planes like the Bixler and Raptor have issues with efficiency (the thrust angle is pointed down instead of straight across the wing), high wing pusher pod and boom planes like the Skywalker have issues with efficiency because there is more "pod" hanging out in the breeze. Having two vertical stabilizers is more draggy than one stab, but the Skyhunter style design is pretty primo stuff in my opinion.
