Upgrading the Camera Stand Again

Fixed the right camera hanging to the side by cutting and bending the holding plate with the screw. Just 2.5° difference, but it makes all the difference. Still slightly rotated, but around the center, which is less of a distortion.

(Do not look at the picture without 3D glasses!)

But why stop there. Since this will be on a plane someday, let's fixate the camera so it wont rotate around the mounting screw.

And for convenience, a small cut out to the holding plate, so that the camera latch can open and expose the battery and memory card (screwing and unscrewing the camera to the stand over and over again becomes old really fast).

Finally, standing on wheels!

Trimmed away decorative plastic from the landing gear. Saved about 35 grams.
