Finally put my Graphite 2E together. Installed GoPro3 Black.
My next step would be installing Ardu Pilot (Graphite has plenty of space to do it).
I never used Ardu Pilot so I am open for any input whatsoever as far as programming etc.

Nice and smooth :)
Really cool video, thanks for sharing.
Beautiful! This is something I want do to some day, but I was thinking an electric supra (home built). So it will take a while. I love the high performance gliders and would love to do automated thermal hunting ect.
very good, nice aircraft for this job, very smart. nothing like gliding on cool days, smoothest fly.
I have a graphite 2E with UDB. Installation is with canopy on so there is very minimal space. Both UDB and Rx are mounted behind the wing. It is an honest PITA to install.
I also have a UDB installed on a thermik XXL 5m which gives a little more space but not much more.
That thing is a rocket! It can climb almost vertical?! So nice and smooth too!
very smooth flying!
This does indeed look very interesting :) A real nice project ! Kind of what got me into the hobby almost 29 years ago :) The technology has advanced so much !!
Is this the plane we are talking about http://www.hyperflight.co.uk/products.asp?code=GRAPHITE-2E&name...
Thanks for sharing.
You are giving me some wild ideas - I used to take my gliders so high many times I would loose site - scared the daylights out of me, many times. But today....with a little bigger glider :) ..... a light little camera and First Person View ......... hmmm.........
very nice flight. I noticed you put the camera side with fuselage, this gives you less drag and longer flight.
did you thing to put a small mirror in front of camera oriented as 30-45 deg to see right in the front? even you can pan (move horizontal) the mirror with a small servo. just an idea...
