    What is the trick to unplugging the bluetooth module? The connector doesn't seem to want to come out of the socket. Are there release clips or something?

    Hello,

    If you search for "connex" in this forum, you will find a thread on my experiments with FPV. I've since moved that FPV equipment to my Tricopter, but it was interesting to try it out on the Aton first.

    Here's my controller setup. It doesn't record but this is my first attempt at fpv. So far it works just great and for everything including the transmitter in under 100 bucks.

    Mounting the vtx and the wires under the hood on top of all of the Atons electronics, doesnt this cause interference?...seems like it would?

    It's 2 separate signals 2.4ghz and 5.8ghz for the Vtx. So far I haven't had any issues and I've seen others do the same. Only one I've had was the transmitter getting hot.

    An alternative to dedicated fpv goggles is to use a gear vr (2016/usb C version) or google cardboard. You need a vrx with av output, uvc video grabber (or easycap), usb otg cable and an app (most include a dvr feature too). It's higher latency then fpv goggles of course, but much cheaper than a decent pair, and of course you can use them for 3d apps/gaming.

    I don't believe it's available as a part to buy. You probably need to ring/email traxxas and ask. Please let us know the outcome (in a new thread).

    Traxxas will replace either of the boards for $20 each

    That board is the FC Flight Controller and the other one under it is the ESC. Just for future reference

    So I'm thinking 200mw VTX and a 900TVL CMOS camera, sound good?

    Has anyone gotten a HAM technician license or are we in agreement that it's not needed for 5.8ghz?

    There are 2 pins on the front of the connector on the ECS board side, lift the connector from the back supporting the whole thing and rock it towards the ECS board and it will pull straight out, the same applies for all the other connectors on the other boards.

    Super Clean FPV install update... I'm also moding the ATON transmitter with a signal booster by powering it off the 4AAA batteries and making it removable with a right angle DC power plug for anyone that is interested.

Just had to unplug the Bluetooth module and plug in the MinimOSD. The whole setup is powered from the red JST plug that normally hangs out the bottom. It provides access to the battery voltage and I've relocated it to be accessible under the canopy to supply power to my VTX and camera. I cut holes in the canopy for the camera and antenna. The camera is just hot glued in its hole and angled upwards with the canopy which will provide a nice level view of the horizon in forward flight. The props do not come into view of the camera. This camera does not record but I can record the video on the DVR in my Dom V2's.










    I know this was a year ago but I'm hoping to get details on the setup. Especially which OSD board was used.

    You're gonna have to splice some wires because there isn't a plug and play setup out there for the ATON'S mavlink and audropilot telemetry, but I've included a picture of the connectors you need to hook up to on the Flight Control board... and I'd get a 200mw video transmitter just because its a happy medium and the 600mw vtx's just get super hot...

    I'll do a range test once I get my OSD setup and give you a full report here, maybe even do some video from my Fatsharks so you guys can see the OSD for real
