    Looks great, wondering about the FPV camera angle; looks pretty low to me from the angle of this photo.

It also makes setting a video system up crayola simple - literally plug in the servo connectors for the camera and vtx and it works. If tuning it is really worrying you, then don't until you have time... Just fly in manual like you don't have a controller in and enjoy the sick osd.
    Thanks Hoss, I never considered that and this is just what I'll do.

    Will find out! Lol. The angle is 90 degrees off the slope of the top of the nose. Which, it's my understanding that's what Chris said was ideal in one of the videos? If not, the way I have it in the box can be adjusted, the GoPro not so much..

    The gopro angle you want facing down because your want more of the ground footage than you do the sky, but the flight camera should be pointing straight out because that will be the direction you're flying. Your ahi is going to be at the top of your screen and it's going to look like you're constantly headed down towards the ground with a steep flight cam angle like that. I set my gopro to the sarne angle as the nose. Don't know if it'll let me attach this photo like this, but I'll try.

    Edit: nice build btw. I like the way you wrapped the front with the black and the cf lid is a nice touch. Congrats. Now fly the bitch!

    I can see the difference between your two cams. I have usually always pointed my wing cameras down, since they typically fly a bit nose high. Sort of like a quad, aiming the camera up.. With that being said, you guys are flying yours, and I'm not yet. I'm also pretty sure my ahi shows up in the middle of my picture, will check that tonight. It's funny you say "now fly that bitch" because only list of to do's that's my last to do "fly this bitch" lol. We also have 3" of rain coming this weekend, so no maiden this weekend.

    Hoss, I had to check my ahi over lunch and its smack dab in the middle of the screen like it should be. Now how close to in flight level are you guys finding the plane to be with how it sits on the ground?
