A temporary ground station for my hex.
« on: July 23, 2016, 08:06:19 PM »
As a temporary solution, I have made up the following ground station to view telemetry from the hexacopter. The top right hand corner shows the amount of satellites locked onto the hexacopter ( 10 at this stage ) and it didn't take too long for them to be locked on.

I have used bits and pieces I had at home.

The fitted aerial can be removed and I also have better aerials that I can use if needed.

Very nice set up. Even has room to mount a larger monitor if you upgrade. Gives me ideas of my own now.

The case was from a cheap set of drill bits I bought for work.

I have an immersion rc diversity rx for when I fly FPV, but I would like something like the following http://mongrelgear.com.au/lcd-screens/bird-dog-10-1-inch-diversity-lcd-detail.html

I thought it quite handy to have this little setup, to make it easier to tell how many sats are locked onto the hex etc.

Cheers Dave.

Very basic at the moment. Components everywhere which is why I like your case. I usually fly off the goggles anyway but the ground station with monitor is good for others to be able to see what's going on.

I like the ability to be able to see what is going on in terms of settings, modes, sat lock etc and even though the L.E.D. is easily seen, having this aswell is a lot better and as you mentioned, it gives others a chance of seeing what is going on.

The first time I hovered over my house ( not with the Hex ) but the qav 250, the kids were amazed at seeing the top of the house and my car out front lol.

Cheers Dave.

Hey mate, hows life treating you?

The pictured Rx doesn't have diversity mate, but the one I have setup for the racing quad with my goggles does. I'm not an expert at this by any means, but I'm enjoying the learning curve at the same time.

Cheers Dave.

Hey guys, I had these bits and pieces rock up for the F.P.V. ground station.

As you can see from the pic, the new screen is an 8 inch screen.

The deal came with a bunch of cords to hook connect stuff up, a Turnigy 3s 5000 lipo, a thermometer ( not sure why ) and voltage monitor for the lipo.

It also came in a case similar to the one I am using now.

I got the deal of off ebay.

I will use the immersion duo pictured as part of the new setup ( different antennas aswell) as the ones on the duo in the pic were just for testing purposes, so I will get a new case happening and have it looking shmick.

Cheers Dave.



LOL. maybe it's not going to be such a temp Ground station now for the Hex.

O.K. So I got more done on the Temporary Ground Station to the point that it is now not a Temporary Ground Station LOL.


I didn't like the way the case looked that came with the screen and cables  so I had some leftover carbon vinyl and used this on the outside and added some Black foam and bits and pieces internally, after laying things out the way I wanted it.
I guess it can be a backup to my Goggles or just be used for the Hexacopter.





Cheers Dave.
