The picture is a bit small, but it looks like a pc plug to me (the plug that goes to the power supply), or a old printer plug.

Diversity receiver antenna mast.

For when I am flying while viewing the monitor instead of the goggles, but still want the extra vRx in the goggles. The top of the mast has the tracking unit with the uni-directional antenna, and the goggles have the omni-directional antenna, both hardwired to the main ground station Eagle Eyes and power supply.

Guys, I'm starting from scratch next week as I had to sell off all my FPV equipment when I moved overseas last year. I want to keep my new setup very simple and mobile. The first thing I need to figure out is a way to mount a ground station box on a tripod. I've never had much luck doing that in the past. The two times I've tried to mount a GS box on a tripod, it feels flimsy. Can someone with a solid and stable tripod setup explain what you used to accomplish this?

Thanks,

TL

You could try something like this, i'm sure that you could find it for cheaper.

Thanks Swartz. That looks perfect, but I'm afraid it might be a bit cumbersome for me as I have a long walk to the flying field.

I wonder if anyone is familiar with some sort of universal adapter that allows you to attach anything to a tripod. In the past, I've used the adapter that came with the tripod, and it was just too small to support the weight and dimensions of my GS case. How do you guys mount things to camera tripods?

Progress so far...


Hey Guys,
This is my progress so far...

A brief description of the photos are:

1. Once you open the case you see the screen and the equipment cover
2. Remove the equipment cover, you have access to the Netbook, Telemetery transceiver (bottom middle grey box) & Video Receiver (bottom right grey box)
3. Remove netbook and you have cable storage (as telemetery & video rx are tripod mounted)
4. Equipment cover replaced giving area for Netbook to be setup
5 & 6. Close up of Video Rx that is powered locally (on the tripod) by a 3S Lipo.

Any comments or questions?

Im still looking at power switching etc. The only real thing I have is the display which has its own power switch so Im not exactly sure what Im going to include.

Thanks
Adrian

Looking at getting this Pyle splitter from Amazon. Looks like the same one as from RMRC.

Question: How do you use the existing cable to connect this to a 3S lipo? What connector do I need to buy? Then is it just a matter of soldering the connector onto the cable that comes with the Pyle splitter?

Thanks in advance!

Hey Macgyver,

I bought mine from RMRC because I wasn't sure if the one from Amazon came with the power cable. I would guess it does..... but, to be certain the cable would be included, I paid the extra from RMRC . All I had to do was solder on my Deans plug. The power cable plugs into the splitter. ( I'm not sure what kind of plastic plug it is.)

Ok so all my ground station stuff plus my van was totaled in the hurricane ! Now I'm going to set up a small compact set-up . Please some one tell me if this is ok to have the receivers opened up like this ? There are two 1280 receivers with a eagle tree for diversity . Also in the pic I will not be using those antennas of course ! Not sure if there will be radio noise causing interference ?.. Please let me know
