Hello Lads

For those interested, we have a Pan and Tilt Antenna Tracker coming for the Eagle Eyes Antenna Tracker.

They come complete with servos and all the hardware you need, along with a tripod mount. I hope to have more pictures up soon, but I have seen footage of these in action and they look fantastic. You will need to pre-order and we don't know how many we will have initially.

NOTE - It does not include the antennas etc... you will need your own. These are the pan and tilt systems.

Any questions, just let me know!!

You can find the Antenna Trackers Here


Cheers
The Mongrel

Looks good. I'm thinking of getting the EE and this rig would be great.

Cheers

Nice work Kev. Funny we dont see more purpose built FPV platforms.

How far away are you from putting the FPV gear in the air?

Cheers Mongrel , flew like a trainer to be honest, very forgiving, the clark Y wing foil was a good choice i think, but i need to move the cg back a bit.

Cheers, Kev.

Thanks mate!

My Range video order was shipped on Jan 4th(900mhz 500mw), but i'm also waiting on a 1050mh lipo from HobbyKing so maybe 2 weeks.

I was able to fly around on half throttle without any problems so the extra weight from the Video gear wont hurt flight performance much(i hope)

Cheers, Kev.

Great looking plane and a well designed platform for FPV, you have done well Kev. I will look forward to your first "in flight" video !! The area you are flying in looks as dry as our airfield here in Rocky Nick

Nice one Kev!! Now you need one of the new cameras I am about to launch!!

Big Thanks to Wobby for pointing me in the right direction.

I did some testing on these and they results are pretty good!! I don't know exactly when we will get them in... maybe a few a weeks I reckon.

The one in the following video is the 420 lines jobby I think, and the result was pretty good!!

OH YEAH... AND... we have been in talks with FAT SHARK to be their Aussie Distributor, and it all looks good. We have started listing the products on our site and we are super excited. We will also be offering a local point of Before and After Sales Support - so if you have a pair of Fat Sharks and you have a problem, then I am hear to try and help you. I am really excited about the new BASE model. This is a wired Fat Shark goggles for those that already have TX and RX setup, but still want a quality goggle!!

Check it out here ---- http://www.mongrelgear.com.au/the-mo...category_id=10

I also have a Vendor forum that I have just started - I will be adding everything there shortly, as we have LOTS happening.

Anyways...

Here is the video of the Camera test!! Watch the landing... its a loolly !!

Testing New Camera (2 min 5 sec)
