I got the material from ACP

http://www.acp-composites.com/ACP-CAT.HTM

It is the fiberglass/nomex honeycomb stuff. Lighter than balsa and incredibly strong.

A piece 3" x 12" x 1/8" weighs 24 grams

The mount and camera are no issue whatsoever as far as weight. The weight issue becomes the lipo pack needed to run the Lehner motor without puffing a pack.

Here are a few pics of a mount I have made which rotates under the skids of my Joker CX. Some guys in France came up with the concept initially. This is my own version which has been working well for me thus far.

It weighs in at 5 pounds...that's with the Canon 350XT, all the servos, the downlink, the Black Box telemetry system, and resulting batteries.



Work is in progress for a front-mount for this heli, but to get it installed I will have to replace the lower frame sides with custom chopped ones. Sort of becomes a dedicated camera ship with that method.

What goes up, is probably really expensive.

Nice Pete,

How much time and money do you think you have into it?

Thanks,

Thanks

How much money into it? Well, other than the servos, receiver, downlink camera and tx/rx, and telemetry box, the mount itself is probably less than $10 in aluminum and HDPE, spring pins, and 4-40 screws and some rivets.

As far as time goes, though, lol...it's a hobby, right? haha

Here is my new down link system. I used a clip board to mount everything to. The cost was very good, under $200 for everything. Except the camera.
