I finally got my Raptor 50 V2 converted to electric with a Photoship One 2XPT front mount.

The journey was a lot of fun. I first converted the 50 V2 to a Titan SE. Then I bought all the exclusive Raptor e620 parts and converted it to electric. Then I flew it and it was so smooth I decided to get a front mount for it.

I talked to DJ and he suggested I send the helicopter to him to fit the 2XPT. He had to fabricate a set of lower frame to make the camera mount fit. He did a wonderful job and it worked but I had two Thunder Power pack 6400 mah pack that is too tall for the frame. So I asked DJ if he can modify the lower frame to accommodate the taller batteries. He did and here is the final result.

My very own eRaptor AP ship with a custom fitted Photoship One 2XPT front mount.

I did take off the pan servo and modified the mount to swing on the roll axis. The reason is that I fly solo and can't really use the pan function because I can't see the camera attitude if I adjust it. I can only see my helicopter's attitude so I have to point with my helicopter.

So a picture speaks a thousand words so here is two pictures.

VERY clean looking machine, she looks great, I'm looking forward to seeing some footage from it!
Is that a WA converter you're using on an SD9?
How do you find it?
I've got to say that the service from PhotoShipOne is second to none, great communication and support throughout all my interactions with them.

Thank you.

>>Is that a WA converter you're using on an SD9?<<

Yes it is. Since I shoot solo I like to use a wide angle lens. I found a Sony wide angle adapter for my Sony CX12 via Google. It screws onto the camera with a 37 mm thread. It turned out that the Panasonic SD9 also has a 37 mm thread in the front and the wide angle adapter fits perfectly.

So far I think the adapter is working quite well.

Cool, I had a look at a few wide angle converters but there seems to be a huge variety of them with wildly different pricing and very little in the way of objective reviews.

Looks great.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Generally speaking you get what you paid for. This Sony I got cost around $150.

Thank you. I like the way the Raptor flies. It is so smooth. I haul up very light payload so I don't need a big, expensive helicopters. I do have them in case I need them but the smaller one fits in my car easier.
