Maxi Swift with 10.000 mah battery

I have been flying a lot FPV with my Maxi Swift, and all in all, it have been a great FPV-plane. While it still flies great, it have been a test-plane for new electronic, camera mount etc. So I decided it would be nice to build a new one for large batteries and a clean build this time.

This is the most important things changed from my first build:
- 2 x 5.000 mah 3S li-po batteries (~800 gram batteries)
- Increased distance between video-tx and rc-receiver (approx 1 meter)
- Plane have been laminated
- Better GoPro mounting

Except for that, the setup is pretty similiar to my previous build.

Some of the equipment mounted, and the rest test-mounted:
