Post Your Multirotor FPV Rig.

Just like the thread name says. This is the place to post pics and specs of your FPV Multirotor Rigs. I was getting a lot of requests to share my setups, including ground station. So I figured it would be nice to have a running reference of other folks setups too so that people can share them for ideas, configuration and mounting, or whatever reason really. So post up your pics and specs, include your ground station if you like, but lets not make this a ground station thread since there are already a few of those on all the different sites. If possible, limit ground station pics to 3 or less. Feel free to use the following as a template. Try to include this info in this format if possible to make it easier for everyone to read:

I like where you mounted your DL Recv. I thought about putting it there but I was worried about vibrations transferring to my OPCC. Did you notice any?

None at all though i haven't done any more than hover checks with it.

To mount the DL receiver i used the Align translucent blue adhesive (i think its call PU Adhesive) as a vibration absorber followed by double sided foam tape on both sides because it stuck better. It will move when touched but won't come free.

I will return with the flight report in a day or so..

GyroFreak,

How does the Naza perform on the HT-FPV frame in both modes? I have the OPCC board installed on mine and the tuning is a PITA so i might throw a Naza on it. I have one working great on my VC450 frame. I love it!

The NAZA is great, very little setup and very simple to setup. I love this thing, great for poor flyers like me. The attitude hold mode is great, very stable but still lets you get some control (very mushy in this mode, but what the heck, that's what it is intended to do, hold it's attitude and altitude.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
