Airplane used to take pictures. The camera is mounted near the center of gravity.
Camera is a Easy Shot ES27 EV Automatic film advance camera that I bought at Wal-Mart. I tried using a 5 dollar camera but had to land and advance the film then take off again. It worked great but it took a long time to take a roll of film with so many take offs and landings. Technical update: Had to go back to cheap 5 dollar camera. The Easy shot ES27 EV camera filled up with model airplane fuel and quit working.
Rubber bands are used to hold the camera in place.
Airplane is a butterfly the I bought as a kit from Tower Hobbies. Notice the camera just in front of the landing gear. (airplane does not come with camera)
I brought airplane to an engineering class for a demo
I let one of the students fly airplane and explained that it takes a gentle touch on the controls.
The student did not listen which resulted in breaking the wing and destroying the aircraft.
I was not reimbursed.
