this got to be the best I have seen

Not to often does "sexy" apply to r/c, but your work in an exception. Those are amazing

Defiantly not mine, but it is a ground-station.

I got to play with it at an airshow a year or so ago. On the ground obviously . I could zoom the camera in at building in the city a mile away and see people walking around in them. Probably the most expensive ground-station I'll ever touch.

They've still forgotten to put the monitor under a hood, or at least they should've used a daylight visible monitor for a few hundred bucks more in such pricey gear. Well, there are always some privates around to erect those tents fast... :-)

Here´s my GS. Not finished yet because I had to wait more then 40 days for my CF vinyl... The only thing I don´t like so far is that you´re able to see the plywood in the holes....

Black matte touch up paint or even a permanent marker will do the job for you...

Thanks, before I even read your post I already used a permanent marker. Works great!

That looks so relaxed....Great Job!

Last night I found some time (between learning for my upcoming exams...) to work a little more on my GS. This is how the GS looks now:

Hello,

There are my 2 versions of my so-called light groundstation, the secon version, at the bottom of the page might be called stealth groundstation. I developed these setup to keep the possibility to move myself (go away or hide) during fpv sessions... Just put the multirotor in position hold, take googles of and walk or run... Then take control back.

It is there:

Wow!

Did you made this goggles?

I'm interested to build one for me. Only to receive images from mine Vrx 1.2Ghz. I won't use LCD screen in field. Is hardly to see under sun.

Could you please tell me where I can found a schematic? Have you create a work log in forum?

Thanks a lot.

You look awfully comfortable in there! I like to stand in the cold northwest winter breeze, with my fingies going numb, to get the true FPV experience!
