build

Getting closer

Wired up most of the ground station over the weekend. Nearly had enough time to finish, but fell just short. Will hopefully be able to finish it this week, at which point it will be fully operational - and then I can start writing up the instructions/build log for the darn thing.

Here it is powered on:

Starting to Build My Ground Station

The two major 3D printed components are now complete. The printing has finished, I've removed the support material, I've tapped all of the holes, and I've mounted all of the jacks and switches. This is the build equivalent of framing a house: an appearance of rapid progress soon followed by the appearance of no progress as I go about wiring up the guts and doing the detail work.

3D Printed Groundstation Beta 2

Did some updates to my 3D printed ground station.

As it turns out, being stuck with an 8x8" build space is pretty limiting, plus today's components aren't designed for use inside of another box. As a result of the latter, I've shelved the idea of putting the radio components on removable carriers and instead have moved to mounting them on the back.

Popwing FPV build

I have been procrastinating like crazy with this build, and as a result the goal have been a moving target. First it was just going to be a simple 'naked' FPV build, No OSD, no flight control, no stabilizer. That lasted a few weeks as I tried to find time to build the wing. I bounced back and forth with using just a basic stabilizer, like the Orangerx stabilizer or no stabilizer . I even toyed with the idea of just building this as a LOS model, but then I was sure I would only fly it two or three times before it would go under the knife for the FPV gear.
