My FPV Ground Station Build
« on: June 15, 2015, 09:05:54 PM »
Thought I would share my finished ground station I have been working on for just over a month now. This ground station has an Immersion RC 5.8ghz dual diversity receiver, 13db directional patch antenna and Immersion RC Spironet antenna for close in flying. The whole setup is wrapped in carbon fibre wrap to give it a tactile look. The wrap is similar to a contact wrap so it doesn't affect the signal due to not being real carbon fibre plates. I am looking at relocating the spironet antenna so no interference occurs between it and the patch.

The setup is mounted on a Dolica tripod which houses the main board containing the electronics, voltage meter for the power source, optional AV input for goggles which can be rested on the custom 3D printed fatshark goggle holder.

Furthermore, all flights can be viewed from the rear 7" monitor or recorded with the RMRC DVR. Overall I'm really proud of this build and it just looks even better in person. Always open to feedback, improvements etc.

What a monster, my similar setup with patch and Spironet fits in a small part of my backpack.

It's all personal preference. I'm thinking about mounting my telemetry and laptop to the stand so I can monitor and make changes on the fly.

very nice work Luke, looks very solid.

May i suggest mounting the main board in a pelican case(or cheaper version is just as good), and using a Manfroto super clamp with a screw clasp to grab the handle.

This is what we use.  It is tremedously robust and portable.  Both your antennas will work just fine through the back of the case.

Great work mate.
A quick close of the case and it water proof.

I agree.  Does not get any smaller/lighter than a set of Fatshark Dominator V2 goggles with their in-built dvr imho.  Lots of range with FS/Immersion 250mw vtx  w/spironet antennas for 'legal' maaa spotter los distances.
Lots of Blade Heli's, TT X50E, Ion-x, HC/BD3sx on most
Lots of E-Planks, multi's, now into FPV, MAAA Gold Wings, Heli's and Planes
