I recently went through my RC photo archive and it brought back some great memories of projects past and good times. I thought it would be fun to catalog some of them here on my blog since it is not always easy finding content from the early days here on RCG. I hope you enjoy it!

So I have been thinking about doing this for a while, but finally got the parts to pull it off. I wanted to leave everything functional by itself and still use the cable when I use my tripod based ground station, so I made conversion connections for everything.
I picked up several used Futaba mini square trainer plugs and hacked some old RCA cables to plug into the RC 305 rx the usual way. Nice and compact and both powered off a 2s 1200ma lipo. I am going to make an attachment for the Lawmate 1280 rx and use it the same way but with a 3s lipo and regulator to run the goggles on 7.4v.

Going to test fly with the Slow Stick on 5.8ghz omni antennas this weekend.
