Recently received a JJRC H95 "airplane" and it inspired me to make use of an old unfinished Guillows Piper Cub 95 that I built the air frame for a few years back. It fly's but it struggles to generate enough lift with the small props I have on it.

Doing some research now for some larger props that will fit the 1mm shaft of the 8520 motors. If I can get it to generate more lift I will put a small AKK AIO camera/vTX combo in it for some FPV flights.

Used an old Boldclash B03 Pro FC in it that I had sitting on the bench, and harvested the battery bay from an old Eachine E010 frame that had the correct mounting hole in it for the FC. A little bit of hot glue later and voila! :)

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
