A new improvement with my Skywalker Aerial Photography with an Ardupilot Mega autopilot.
I bought a Hobby King fiberglass Skywalker so I have enough room for a gimbal and cut off the tail section because it's too heavy. I attached the foamy tail section of my old Skywalker because it's 3 ounces lighter.
The Ardupilot Mega has a camera gimbal stabilization feature that I am using although I might use a Fy-30a stabilizer instead.

The canopy area will be used to house my battery pack . There is plenty of room
for a 4000 mah 4 cell Lipo battery
