This is my latest build: a mobile ground station. I wanted to have everything I need in one package for long range FPV so I ended up putting all in one:
* 868Mhz RC Link;
* 5.8Ghz Analog Video & Audio;
* 433Mhz Telemetry Link;
* 2.4Ghz HD Video;
* 7 Inch HD Video Display;
* Small OLED displays for Power, Telemetry & Video Info;
Some other things I wanted from it: external power input and output (In case of low battery and to power other external devices too); video out, telemetry out, extensible (add more micro controllers to it, for like controlling multiple drones at once).
Overall, happy with the result and it does works great and I really like the fact that I don't have to deal anymore with cables, connection and stuff at the field. I just power on and fly whenever I'm somewhere.
Here are some pictures of the final result and some taken during the build process.

Flyes about 100mph. Nice.
Weight ready to fly is 375g.

Bulinding my seccond A10, this time I took the time to make fix all the issues I did not liked about GWS A10 and make it into a better kit.
Weight with no batteries is 600g.
Flies good, maintains flight at about 60 watts total power.

Things I did not liked and changed:
* lainding gear - front weel I really disliked. Moved to a steerable tail weel.
* smoth out trailing edges.
* reinforce fuselage;
* shorten the wing span.

More to come.

After a 10-15 year pause, I'm back to planes. I'm tired of helis, I want some fun while flying.
With my planes, I can actually leave off controls and look another way for few moments

This is my new PC-9.
