made myself one the only thing i added was lipo battery checker inline that has a momentary switch wired to it (only display voltage when i press the button). after using it for sometime thought it...
This is a build log to share the steps and knowlage by making a GPS / RSSI based antenna tracker with open source and open hardware stuff.
Maybe some peoples are interested in building something similar. For a selfish reason I hope this thread can help me to stay motivated and finish this FPV...
For those interested to monitor the strength of video downlink in the ground station, here's an option using Arduino and a small LCD:
I recently took interest in FPV flight, and since I'm familiar with quadrotors, I thought I'd start with the Blade Nano QX FPV RTF. I wanted to make an investment into the fatshark goggles and the camera so I could use it later. However, I couldn't figure out anyway to receive onto...
I've been slowly building up my ground station.
First it started off with a DVR unit. (Portable DVR for FPV)
Then I picked up a Quanum DIY FPV Goggle Set. I never indeeded to use the set as goggles but rather a monitor for my spotter or me.

In the meantime I'm putting together my ground station. Now I need a mini DVR to capture the FPV video. It seems to me that if they can make something as small and as...
