    I'm just about wrapped up with V2 of my mobile hangar and charging station. It contains 2 P3Pro's (RTF), 2 RC's, 2 Pads, holds 12 batteries, DJI multi battery charger, 6 USB charging ports, 7 120v outlets, 2 Marco Polo's, 1 Marco Polo Transmitter, 2 extra sets of props. Also has chargers installed for my 3dr Solo which I'll have in a backpack. One plug runs everything in my Ford C-Max and my F250. I can fly and charge all day. I can pick it up as is and put it in either vehicle, when I get to where I'm going, unplug the one plug, bring it inside and plug it back in. I'll post a few more pics when it's completed.

    You guys are so innovative. I feel as if I live in stone age.

    Care to share some details on the parts/build?

    That's definitely the most compact and well organized P3 setup I've seen. Kudos!

    Sham,

    I'll pull the birds and controllers off tomorrow and post some pics so you guys can get a better look. Pretty simplistic really. I put the first one together last summer but it was set-up for a P2 and a P3. I wanted to change some things so I could take both P3's and the Solo. I'm glad you guys like it.

    I wanted it to be super light so it was easy to move around. I could have made it look better but I didn't want to use wood or anything that was heavier. I had a lot of fun with it last season. Looking forward to the nice weather again.

    Jerry

    Awesome! Much appreciated. Thread is watched, so I'll keep an eye out for your post.

    I've been needing to do something about my current "organization" (or lack thereof) setup for a while, so this might kick me in the butt to get it done.

    Due to all of the interest from you guys I decided to make some changes. These were a few things I was going to do but I kind of got stalled. The interest from you guys motivated me to go ahead and make the changes today. So instead of reworking the old unit I figured I just go straight to V3. I took a bunch of pictures this time around. I'll resize them and post them as thumbnails tonight or tomorrow. Biggest changes, cleaner holes, better bird support and it can now hold 18 batteries (4 on the multi-charger, 6 on each side and 2 in the birds). These are just the pics I took when it was completed.

    Here's the thumbnails (I don' know how many it will take in a post). If you have any questions, just ask.
