Radian FPV

I have been flying this Radian for about 2 years, and taught others to fly from it. It's a great trainer.
So I decided to cut it up and install some FPV gear in it. The antenna and OSD was embedded into the wing. I am using the Dragon Link for RC TX and RX. At this time I am using 5.8Ghz for Video. Can Read more on my Vimeo page of some the issues I had getting it in the air. I am using 3c 2200mah. Getting 20-30 minute flights.
I started ordering parts for my ground station about 1 1/2 years ago. Since then things have changed big time with antennas.

(5 min 19 sec)

This ones pretty long.
Just to get an idea what I was seeing and dealing with the antenna
(11 min 50 sec)

Some light weight sheat metal with a 1/4 lip around the bottom. With a rubber trim on top.
It's velcroed to LCD edge.
I been using the LCD Screen in my shop when setting up or testing and at the field for setting up the OSD. It's mostly there for others to view. I have been flying with the Fat Sharks.

I still use this tracker today with just one 5.8Ghz. receiver and circular antenna. Wish I still had the Radian.
