Children's Hospital FPV Ironman

This platform is being developed to provide Ironman rides to kids at Children's.

So far so good. Finally received all my stuff. Ordered the TX and battery filter from Spain and the antenna from China. I really like the battery filter that lets you use the aircraft battery via the balance plug. The tx has a 5.03v output for the camera which is perfect for the #16 808 keychain. Found the Ironman mask at Walmart on sale for $10 and the Fat Shark goggles will mount inside. Was amazed that the total weight is only 1.88 oz for the airborne electronics. I have another rig like this in my Parkzone T-28 canopy for racing and have had no range issues on channel 1. This tx has only 7 freq selections and I set it at the other end of the spectrum at channel 7. On my goggles, chan 7 and 8 seem to receive equally well. Will need to flight test to verify which one is correct and validate range.
