I am flying multicopters, so I am not looking for really long range, my goal is to have fun, chase birds and make beautiful videos. I also want to fly in places were I did not asked for authorizations and for this I want to remain stealth.

For these purposes, I looked into developing light portable groundstations that can provide me with about one kilometer range.

The first one was mounted onto a hat with a curtain to avoid sun but recently I did the ski google mod for my fpv glasses and changed the hat by a Tumi tote bag. Since the pics, I replaced the carbon plate by glass fiber because carbon was impairing the video signal range.

Here is the gear list:

- 900 MHz receiver
- Stock 1db antenna
- Zeiss cinemizer googles with Bole ski google mod
- CarbonBird / Fpv Japan Video recorder with remote recording button outside the bag
- 5V Ubec to continuously charge googles and Video recorder
- 3S 2200 mAh lipo that can supply the whole thing for about 3 hours

See pictures or my website for full details
