  • Perfect thank you Mauricio

  • @Marc Cretten

    I never did, sorry about that. I have been extremely busy these past months. Hopefully I will make myself some time the upcoming month or so.

  • Mauricio Cancino did you ever do a build log for your TX? 

  • @Mauricio Cancino
    Fantastic idea first and neat implementation.
    Hat off.

    Release 4th Quarter 2014? Really? Q4 2014 finishes in 20 days or so.

  • @Sergio

    You should know werent you the guy hand building a really nice tx a while back ?

  • @Chim:

    Lamborghini does real engineering, your not buy vapourwear like the fashion industry. Theres a big difference between a work of art like a Lambo and your typical consumer car.

    The beast looks hand assembled and a lot of effort must have gone into the software and hardware.

  • Very nice work! This is where the Drone industry is indeed headed, tablet integration. We just need a better price point. I too am eager to hear more about the 'HD' video link...

  • @Mauricio Cancino: very nice build... how do you get video from the 5.8GHz receiver into the windows tablet? do you have any USB video capture device connected to it?

  • @Chim Xotox: In a few words, I just used a turnigy 9x radio, a telemetry module and a normal 5.8ghz video reciever. I designed the case, 3D printed it and put everything inside. I don't have much time now to go into more details, may be in few week I will upload a build log.
