Aye, my tail planes journey continues. Now I'm interested in STOL planes and Durafly Tundra V2 got chosen.

I live near water and in the snowy country in whinter time. This tundra has the floaties and the skis.
I used my old and trusty Matek F765-WSE FC with iNav for partial flying automation and camera control.

My additions by now:

  • Designed better looking front lid and fpv-pod to use instead ugly wooden version
  • Tail camera
  • Tail surface mounted gps module
  • Mount for easy acces to the FC
  • Top universal mount with M3 threaded intserts

Camera control functions:

  • Switch position 1: Tail
    • Tail camera with simplified OSD for cleaner view
  • Switch position 2: Front centered
    • Front camera with data overflooded OSD. Usually used as a main camera
  • Switch position 3: Front with gimbal
    • Front camera with minialistic OSD for cleaner scenery view
    • Throttle set on hold, rudder centered
    • Throttle stick controls gimbal's tilt servo and yaw controls pan servo

Nice one bud, I have a Grand Tundra set out with iNav and on the Matek 765 Wing board. Have you got any flight footage? I took this one awhile ago, I never went with a pan servo on this (I do have one on a Slowpoke).

Took this video awhile ago;

Nice! I've just built it. Waiting for free time and calm weather for maiden, trimming and other setup. Then I can fly in rough weather too, when I get familiar with it.

Nice ! Do you use 2 vifly cam switchers for your 3 cams ?

F765 FC has natively two camera switch. So no need for separate switch as there is only two camera on this plane.
But I used previously some no-branded switch in Ranger with three cameras.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
