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!

2x 7" LCD Hair Screens
Eagle Eyes Diversity Controller
2x 1.2ghz Lawmate vRx
2x 5.8ghz Foxtech vRx
2x Fat Shark Base Edition Goggles

comming soon!!!!! 1 more Eagle Eyes Diversity Controller for the 5.8ghz gear.

I will be making a face plate, power distribution, switches for power..... BECs for 5v, 9v and 12v so the TV screens and 5v output.

I also have bulk head RCA ports for being able to quickly connect and disconnect the goggles.

1 TV and 1 Goggle will be on 5.8ghz and the other set will be on 1.3ghz

the 5.8ghz goggles will be run through a video switcher so i the passenger/camera operator can swtich between stabilized camera and FPV camera.

This will be used for my multirotors

The rest of the case Pelican 1510 will hold my two Dx8s and all my Lipos for carry on when traveling on an airline

Will be buying a 1620 soon to hold my 3 multirotors...

2 are still being...Continue Reading

Just got in my OpenPilot CopterControl FC, 2 Naze32s and I am still waiting on my DJI WKM. It is in the mail still

well there are just awaiting their frames to arrive from OMG

The CC is going into the OMGFly Hex with 2216s and a X468 flamewheel gopro gimbal and 2x MKS servos!

1 Naze32 will be going into an OMGFly quad with 2814s and a yet to be aquired gimbal for gopro size camera (if the x468 works well enough it will be another one)

the 2nd Naze32 is going to be the gimbal controller for Askman's AG-550 gimbal on my RC-Carbon Y-6 which will have the DJI WKM controller on board!!!!

fun times await! Need to build 2 full multirotors, install and tune 3 flight controllers and one gimbal controller..... and build my pelican 1510 ground station by june 1st
