Tail Cam Complete Flight
This video is a simple single shot camera mounted on the vertical stabilizer near the rudder. But shows the perspective of the tow vehicle and the tow rope. We have made several videos utilizing this position the camera checking the aft fuselage for flutter and ballooning of the rear fairing as well as identifying the interaction of the propeller blades in the static condition. In this video the propeller blades are actually held close to the motor using a rubber band. On other videos with the propeller blades left to float free the bottom blade doesn’t possess enough drag to even streamline the blade completely. If the blades are positioned to either side they will streamline with the motor.
