Default wireless on T-34

hello, i just bought a wireless cam for my 46. T-34 mentor and im having problems on where to put it here's some ideas :
1- in the cookpit
2- under the airplane behind the nose wheel
3-on the wing from up
any ideas will help allot, thanx.

ps. it needs a 9v battery on board so we have to be careful not to mess up the CG.

You can velcro it to the side of the fuse. Make a lite ply or hard balsa "wedge". Glue the camera to that then velcro the whole thing to the fuse. The wedge will add sideways to the view and you can velcro it to whatever amount of down you wish.
When I use a camera on my Kadet Senior ARF, I attach to a hard point I added between the innermost ribs on the left wing. Also has a cutout for a servo allowing full pan.
I am not using one of those "All-In-One" cam/tx systems tho.
I have had great success with both methods, but both entailed cameras what were wired separately from the tx.
Should work ok for your system.

well you can add another channel and make a 60o turret hook it to the flap or a y harness and hook it to the rudder and be able to see the ground very well in a 30o bank
just a thought

If all you want to do is aerial video, unless you plan on filming a dogfight or some other scale event, the best thing would be to put the camera on a non scale plane. Then, it would be more a matter of mounting the camera for the right view. After all, you can't see much of the plane with the camera.
A decent trainer makes a very good aerial platform. You could mount the camera system on the outside of the plane in lots of places in order to get the best viewing angle. The setup you are going to try will not give you much more to look at than a spinning prop.
Anyways, just a few thoughts.
Do you have some purpose in mind that needs to have a T34 as the AV plane?

My first attempt was mounted on a popsicle stick rubberbanded to the fuse of my Tower Kaos.

Not good results!

Oh, that video was a "Lets see what happens" test. I had taped the camera/tx/battery to a balsa stick then rubberbanded it to the side of the fuse. Stuck up on the end of the stick about 2" above the fuse.
Probably the worst way to do it.
Easiest ways to reduce vibrations:
Mount the camera in something so it is surrounded by foam.
We have also had good luck with it just velcroed to the side of the fuse.
Balance the prop as best as possible.
Run lower RPMs whenever possible.

The best way to mount a video system seems to be to hard mount the camera and soft mount the engine. One of those vibration isolation engine mounts work well.

Since you are using an exisiting plane, your best bets are to either velcro the cam to the fuse, encase the cam in a small balsa or liteply box just big enough to surround the camera in foam and velcro that to the fuse, balance the prop.

Even better, get an electric slowflyer plane such as a Wingo or Slow Stick.

With a few exceptions, it's hard to mount a camera in a scale plane so that it doesn't show, but still gives good video. The best thing is to get a plane that camera placement doesn't matter as a means to be anything other than useful. You're not really flying a plane so much as you are a camera One of the better cameras in a scale plane that I've seen is one around here that has a camera inside a large cub. That big cabin really hides the camera and gives a realistic view out the windsheild. I'm thinking about trying my Mustek behind the guns of my Dr1
