    Gimbal Saver (I have modded it to be closer to the actual gimbal and allows less of a tolerance in case it decides to detach lol, it shouldn't) 20160523_225532.jpg 20160523_225610.jpg

    I also bought a head umbrella for the normal Florida days where its impossible to see the screen, hopefully it will help! 20160523_230113.jpg

    I also have a friend in a store... so I can get some really insane prices on drone stuff. Here is the bag I got... I am in love so far. EVERYTHING in it is Velcroed in. Came with zip pouch to hold batteries and whatever else you can think of(I put my lens, gimbal guard, sun shades, cables). Also had a spot for the stock controller but mine is far from stock and im not breaking it down every time, so I use that provided pocket as a support instead and holds other items. 20160523_225754.jpg 20160523_225804.jpg 20160523_225813.jpg 20160523_230302.jpg 20160523_230312.jpg 20160523_230318.jpg

    I don't know what you guys do for mobile power units to charge on the go(besides the car plug, I have that as well). By day I am a electronic repair man so I need mobile power. Here are two units I have dedicated to the drone and no longer use for work. 1- 12,000mah with AC plug and 1-27,000mah with AC outlet. 20160523_230334.jpg 20160523_230359.jpg

    Oh yea.... With the boosters, tonight I got 3500ft over extreme ingested area with no cut outs or signal drops(I turned around due to running out of sunlight)... its was quite pleasing!!!! (Normally I get 2500ft-ish with extreme cut outs and turn arounds and re-attempts)

    Some serious mods. I'm curious what range you could reach in open areas.
    I've got the same bag as yours and it is really versatile.

    I can't wait to get her over open area too!!! I know 12,000ft will be NO issue. I love the bag, I have already re-organized everything. The picture was as good as I could get it sitting in the back seat when I originally purchased it.


    That's cool bud

    One thing that I don't like about this bag is the inside top part which is used for propeller storage. This part kind off "touches" my P3S motors so I took it off. Also it is not easy to insert propellers to this "propeller holder" then it is inside the bag. So I'm not using this, I have arranged another spot to place propellers :).
    But overall it's a good bag and can be used for any 400 mm frame category quads.

    I believe thats why it has a handle on it... You carry it outside the bag but when you get where you are going and have the bag open you Velcro it back in.

    In the updated picture that is out of my bag as well.... I carry it separate with my extra props and some cables etc etc.. snap it back on when i arrive :)

    Pretty self explanatory. Are you looking for inside of controller to finished product or just how to attach and power the amps?

    Attaching the amps I used screws that I have in my tool box into the pre drilled holes by FPVLR. Powered by a dual lead lipo battery purchased from FPVLR as well. I attached the battery with double sided tape, you can use velcro if youd like
