    Sorry for that, I missed the part with the pole

    Well it is 5mm thick alumminium welded together to a box (TIG). I'm sure I could habe bought one, but nah..
    Inside there is a 5Ah 3S LiPo wowering the whe GS. The balancer port is routed trough the D-SUB connector, so I can charge it without opening.

    Further I used: Servocity Pan and Tilt, 2.4GHz Lawmate RX, 11dbi patch.

    I can't think of anything else, but I'll open her up and make some pics, when i get home.
    How many engineers does it take to change a light bulb?
    3. One to hold the light bulb and two to turn the ladder.

    Well my ground station is for sale, or At least parts of it. I am not realy using it anymore because ATT isn't the best thing for flying in the alps. Plus it's quite heavy. But should work perfectly if you drive to you're flying site. Feel free to pm me if you're interested!
