This is my Wizard - all repaired/

More Wizardry Wizard10

This had last been flown three years ago and I had pranged it trying to execute a wingover.

It survived but it was always diffucult to maintain a level heading so I inset the battery in the wing.

Flew this the other day on 35ft steel cables (previously dacron) and it easily flew level but didn't make me feel confident in any further ability. I think that I will install a peppier motor.

Again - no video can't find my camera

Ian,

I took several of my last videos using my phone. Whatever device took pictures of your "Tweety-Bird" ought to be able to do video well enough. One of my first videos was done by rubber-banding the phone to the tripod!

Back to the plane...what is all up weight? And do you have a wet-fuel version for comparison?

I am starting to look into electric for my youngest son.

Thanks,

All up weight including battery is twelve ounces The battery weighs 3.6 ounces.

With a Cox Black widow and no fuel it weighed 7.3 ounces.

If you don't want the hassle of choosing a sutable motor, battery, controller and propeller combination - try

Somewhere I have a GoPro with all the mounts and straps to hear on my wrist, head, chest .......strap to the dog. It is also wide angle. The camera I take stills with would need a tripod and, as with my phone, because I fly solo - i don't fancy the idea of leaving them at some distance from me. Especially leaving the phone switched on with full access. They would be a magnet for a thief.

I have just got one of those DJI Osmo pocket thingies but am still learning how to use it.
