where's the receiver go with optical glasses?
Getting ready to replace tripod'd monitor with optical glasses. Old ground monitor had integrated antenna and sat on tripod with the 12V battery underneath. I am looking to be a little more mobile, if possible. With the advantage of the optical glasses seems a shame to be tied to a stationary ground receiver.
How do you guys that use the eyetops or micro-optical devices deal with the receiver? Tripod? Batman belt with receiver mounted on nerdy looking helmet? Or are we always tied with a cord to the receiver antenna? (Guess I should mention I'm also in market for new downlink transmitter and ground reciever).

So much place in this photo vest.

Antenna is in the left front pocket, interior left pocket contains the receiver and battery. A video cable cross from left (from the receiver) to the rigth outside pocket that contains the eye wear unit.

That also gives a nice "pro like" look

Forgot to say that I also have a digital video recorder in the inside rigth pocket, business card in the front up rigth pocket, spare batteries for the camera and memory cards plus some usefull tools in many lost pockets... boy, I still have place for a lunch in the back pockets...

That makes all my shooting easier cause I have everything... on me!

that's what I was looking for. What do you use for downlink and receiver? And, does having it on you photojacket cause any reception issues. I know with my old monitor the signal was very line of sight and I had to be careful how I situated it to receive a strong signal. Probably had something to do with a relatively low power downlink.

My TX/RX are part of a Flexwave kit coming from BlackWidow.
Tx: 2.4Ghz 200mw.

I use a 8Dbi patch antenna. The antenna is on my front left pocket then always facing the heli when I fly. No reception issues if I don't fly the heli over me (but I never do that) and I never fly the heli to far and to high from me.

For better reception when I have to fly higher, I put the antenna on my left shoulder... with velcro.

Hello phover
Looks good, a very professional job with the equipment vest.

How do you like the glasses? Are they Eyetops?

Thanks
Mark

Hi Mark,

Yes it's the Eyetops on the picture but I don't use them anymore. I now use the Microoptical CV3. Better view, better image, flexible, can be attached to any lens... I wear prescription lens and the Eyetops was a nightmare. Just don't know how I supported them so long
