FPV Slow Stick (currently grounded)

Here’s a quick look at the newest plane in my FPV fleet. It’s a basic GWS Slow Stick with a few mods besides the FPV gear. Those consist of slightly heavier landing gear wire than stock, Dubro wheels, and ailerons. It also has a lite ply battery tray from Radical R/C.

Equipment used:

  • Tower Pro 9g servos for rudder, elevator, and camera pan
  • HXT500 5g servos for camera tilt and ailerons
  • Exceed R/C Alpha 400 28-30 740kv motor
  • 11×4.7 Slow Fly prop (I use both APC and GWS)
  • Hobby King simple series 25/30 ESC
  • FrSky DHR-II receiver w/telemetry
  • FlyTron’s telemetry screen and voltage sensors
  • PZ0420 600TVL Sony camera
  • Fiberglass pan/tilt mount from HobbyKing
  • 1.28GHz 300mW vTX from Ready Made R/C
  • Common Mode LC filter from Ready Made R/C (for powering FPV gear off the main battery)
  • Lumifly nav. lights from Hobby King for flying late after sunset
  • I run 3-cell 2200mAh LiPos for 20-30 minute flights
