    I had an FC40 and have since moved on to other toys. I do miss the FC40 but it is just an emotional attachment as that was my first real woman, I mean quadcopter, and she got to me, I mean I love flying cause it is so darn easy, everything else I ever tried I would break the wings off on my first flight. But back to the reason for the topic.

    I built according the this viewtopic.php?f=20&t=13890 and it all works great. Other then putting it on the dash of my car (it works great and tells me where I am, but I can tell that by looking out the windows of the car) I guess I could do a google road view camera thingy.

    What is included is ardrone system with cameras and a gps module, no special antennas or wifi extenders with this mod, just the ARDrone boards, cameras and gps. I will include or make the necessary cables to provide power per your needs.

    If someone was interested in getting a complete, working telemetry system for the FC40, including velcro straps to attach to frame. Everything to transmit a fpv and telemetry to your phone using. You will have to turn off the FC40 camera wifi and use the FC40 camera as a recording always camera and use my cameras for your fpv.

    Here is a picture of what I can see in the way of telemetry from this mod.

    are you trying to sell your modified FC40?

    If so, you should post it in the classified section :)

    Not sell it so much as to share what I have done with another FC40 owner, I am not going to give it away, but I am not looking to make any kind of profit, just share a completed project that should be being used instead of sitting on my desk. My FC40 is long gone but I got a few of these mods and I thought that someone who was reading the FC40 forum might find this to be of interest just as I did.

    Check out how this looks on my phone, with location showing. Isn't that cool see the battery at 85%, what fc40 pilot doesn't want to know that info. It took some doing to get this working and if I was going to make a profit, I would have to share it with other folks here. So no profit, just what I have into it as has been previously posted here. Or maybe a trade of some kind. In the attached photo the tracking a telemetry info you see is from the mod sitting by itself on top of a homer bucket. Powered by an ardrone battery. But when mounted on an FC40 this can be powered by the onboard battery and I will include the power plug needed. Hey, you are looking for fpv, this does it and at the correct freq. Athough you have to turn your FC40 camera into just a recording device and no wifi. Selling this through the classified section is a thought. If someone wants this I would include the velcro to attach it and the stand that comes in the ARdrone as an option to mount the mod

    Since you mentioned in the first post your intention is to sell it, I have moved it to the 'Classifieds" area where it belongs.
