Hey guys

Just tested my latest FPV set up. Really pleased with it, so much so I took the hex out to over a km which is as far as I will probably ever go :-)

Brief overview:

Rc timer hex
Naza fc and GPS
Cheap gimbal with latest Alex mos software
2.4g video gear
UHF rmilec radio plugged into jr 9x
Sj4000 hd cam
600tvl flight cam

Home made ground station with eagle trees diversity, volt meter and dvr

Antenna are cloverleaf circular polarised and a 12 dbi helical mounted on a cheap speaker stand.

Looks like a beast of a hex!

Nicely done

Thanks Tonka - hex flies really well. Wouldn't normally go for the Naza but I really wanted Rth on this one :-)

The whole setup looks nice, love the ground station antenna mast and case. Did you post any video of your flight ?

Not yet - I found that the cam was too high on the frame and needed to be tilted forward. Gimbal needed tuned as well. Will get round to is after I have this MSH Brain working :-)
