iwan_canobi's 1.3 + 5.8 groundstation
« on: March 02, 2017, 10:23:17 AM »

After getting annoyed with the mess of my botched together groundstation box I decided to de-case everything and 3D print an all-in-one enclosure that would house everything.

The completed box has the screen, 1.3 Rx, 5.8 Rx and 25mW 5.8 VTx repeater for the 1.3 (switchable).

Currently making a build video which I'll post in the next few days, but for now here are a few finished shots:








It has a tripod quick release mount on the bottom. The back isn't as pretty as I would have liked but I printed with a raft. I could have sanded it and re-sprayed but to be honest I didn't want the extra effort, it's already a million times better than the last effort!

:D

Video to follow.

That's a nice neat unit, shame about the finish like you say. Just needed the bed levelled properly.

The bed is levelled fine, it was printed on my works Raise3D N2+ which defaults to having a raft, so when you peeled the raft off it left that strange pattern. I could try again without a raft as bed adhesion isn't a problem, but it was a 12 hour print and I'm impatient! :P

How do you stop that monitor from blue screening? or is it just a reference/backup/passenger screen whilst you fly the sortie in the goggles?

Cheers guys.

Blue, I don't have a way of doing it at the moment, but I don't fly from the monitor as you say. It's really just a set up aid and means other people can watch. I can either use the 5.8 relay to my goggles, or switch the VTx off and just connect directly to the receiver via the phono plug.
