After 2 years of step-by-step advancements in my FPV ground station, the time has come to rebuild that thing!
I take all I learned, and start from scratch. Cut out all that is not 100% necessary, and make the remainder neat and small.
I want to take this thing everywhere and deploy in minutes.
The aim of the game is to build a FPV ground station that allows
- 4 people to connect their goggles and fly
- display the 4 streams to bystanders/race director
- record the 4 streams
- to allow instant replay
- and post video production
My current setup does all that, its just a PITA to transport.
So while Im rebuilding the beast, I will post some links, lists, videos, pictures as we go.
