See what’s inside my DIY ‘Ultimate’ FPV Ground Station V1 that I designed & built for FPV Aerial Photography back in 2004!!

2004 – 15 Years ago! (2019 this video produced) Most people didn’t know what FPV was 15 years ago! ;)
After finding my V1.0 FPV Ground Station in the attic recently, I decided I had to share it with you. I’d almost forgotten about it! So in this video i’ll be doing a complete review, demo & teardown all in one detailed video – Enjoy!

I built this FPV Ground Station V1 while I was living in Thailand, at the time I was running an RC Aerial Photography Business (Vantage AP – Rebranded to VantageCam after a few years). With just some simple hand tools and a small selection of materials, I built this Aerial Photography Ground Station to use while conducting photo / FPV video shoots.
