Almost finished putting together my mark 2 ground station flight case. I've reduced the size of the case to slightly bigger than an A4 piece of paper. It has a Sata 2.5" hdd dvr and a 4 way video / audio splitter with amp to take the incoming signal to the monitor (9") ,dvr and a separate out put for goggles. There's a small LCD for voltage information. Just a couple more bits to do and she's finished.

Cheers just put a search in on the bay for carbon fibre vinyl. I got a roll 300mm x 1000mm for 5. It's self adhesive and you simply use a heat gun or hair dryer to get it in tight corners. This was my first attempt , also if you have a problem you simply peal back and relay it.

I bought the screen from Maplins UK about a year ago so unsure if it's still made as these things are constantly upgraded. It's a Nikkai tv 9".

Can you describe how you get 5 seperate outputs from the DCDC-USB unit? I only see two outputs on that.
