this may be the right place for this, has anyone tried one of the old rca to coax converters for the little tvs to get rid of the bluescreen

First of all you can view the whole project with step by step build photos here:

http://www.fatedev.com/index.php?p=9...+and+lots+more

I use MyFlyDream AAT unit with patch antenna leads S-video cable to ground station. Today I finished my proper ground station.

In my box:

* 9" TFT screen - own lipo supply, multiple S-video, AV and other lead types for patching.
* USB, headphone, antenna jacks built into case top
* Futaba 6EX transmitter
* FatShark video goggles (under transmitter)
* Balance charger, charge leads and car hook-up
* Lipo packs for all my models I can carry in bottom isolated compartment.
* Nano FPV pod (white box bottom area - top right)
* Lipo checker, ESC program board, servo tester
* Tampon case (yes you heard me!) keeps my Cloverleaf nice and safe
* Spare 5.8Ghz VRX with spare power lead.
* Various tools, elastic bands, prop saves, props, magic tape, regular tape and other stuff.

All I have to do is go to the field, open tripod > put tracker on > connect S-video cable > Fly

So with a hexacopter waiting to be build, a DJI WKM ready to be installed on my Y-6 and 2 switches needing to be replaced on my DX8 (I freaking dropped it on the carpet )


This weekend I got some good progress done on my Ground Station


The face plate is almost done:

Still needed to be completed:

Bulk Head RCA plugs for 2x Fatshark Goggles and Aux out for unknown stuff
I completely forgot about them and never ordered them.



On the back I will need to gorilla glue some standoffs and using light ply I will be building some shelves to hold all the wiring harness, fuse, video switch and the rest of the gear!


today i spent some time with my drill press, dremel tool and scroll saw

Put magnets on the doors, and added plastic corrugated sheet on velcro to act as a screen screen and the door acts as the right side.

I did the same with my jr x9503, cept I left it on my roof and drove down the road, haha dont leave your kid with me, theyre screwed... :P

called horizon, they wouldn't sell me a switch so i stole one from a crappy parkzone radio...

what im getting at is fix it yourself... the one i broke was a 2 wire one real easy..

I dropped my Devo 8 off my desk one day and into a 1U server, broke my LG switch. Eventually found a perfect replacement at radioshack .
