Volantex Ranger EX V2 Build
« on: February 13, 2017, 05:22:28 PM »

So this plane has sat awhile but now I'm itching to get on with the build, the first thing was where to mount the autopilot in this cave of a fuselage. Since I have the factory files for my RVOSD I just needed to adapt a mount for it. I want to be able to screw the mount in place for easy of removal if need be and also to allow clear access to the bottom of the fuselage where I'll be mounting the VTX. The RX housing was a reprint of an existing mount I used for my Skywalker 1900. The mount will be around 40mm below the wing seat, The wooden mount will carry at the front a 14V 10Ah battery and just behind it a 7.2V 3Ah and a UBEC, that's the plan for now anyway.

Pitot tube made from a ball point pen tip and the white tube from one of her makeup tools  :o
It's soft mounted with an anti-vibration ball, the idea is if the plane noses over the tube pushes back in without breaking.
