Ground Station Setup:
Custom albumin case with:
~ Two +8db 1.2Ghz patch antennas
~ Two telescoping monopods (holding the patch antennas)
~ Two 1.2Ghz receivers (came with VTXs)
~ Two 4000mah 3s lipo batteries in parallel
~ Two 12v Buck Inverters to power the VRXs and Diversity
Eagle Eyes Ground Station for video Diversity
~ Digital Voltmeter for battery status
~ Two covered toggle switches with LEDs (one for equipment, other for TV)
~ Three video, audio and 12v output for goggles, laptop, etc (RadioShack parts)
~ Composite to USB video capture dongle (used with laptop to capture downlink video)
~ 10.2" LCD TV (runs off 12v)

Close ups of the GS and inside the GS are below. Everything seems to work great, and I've flown my MultiWiiCopter Carbon Scarab, GWS Slow Stick, Grim Reaper and Fun Jet with the gear above with great results.
