  • That's the point it is rugged has the stuff you need is reasonably light weight  the daylight viewable lcd is a must in my opinion the reason for the banana plugs is so it can be charged many different ways to have an onboard power converter adds a ton of un needed weight yea the custom molded idea is something we are looking to do as soon as we get the design down we have done a good job of minimizing dead space but by molding it we can reduce dead space even further the charging mat  is not a bad idea we have been toying with using the Bluetooth to pass data from our station to a tablet or smartphone that can be mounted on the transmitter. Your right this setup is not practical for a park or short range flyer its geared more at someone who wants  to fly FPV at longer ranges we should look into doing a mini case for a short range flyer something much smaller lighter with the basic equipment

  • Well I guess if I was going to buy one I would want the following...

    A integrated qui standard charging mat for my mobile devices, a AC plug that uses a standard computer desktop plug for charging as well as banana plugs. It will have to be something that I cannot replicate myself, so I would expect custom molds and other custom tooling produced parts that would allow for innovative functionality, waterproof, the ability to survive checked luggage and a screen that has full visibility in direct sunlight. 

    Then again the more I fly the less gear I want to carry with me, and if I can get the data another way I will, mobility needs to be the main function and it needs to be light, as if I am flying or going to a remote place having to much or to heavy to carry everything in one trip it is a no go.

    I would rather buy one than build one so I just hope eventually there will be a offering that makes sense
