Mounting FPV vTX

I needed a place to mount my Boscam 5.8ghz 200mW VideoTX. Since I was now splitting the 12v between gimbal and vTX, I thought it might be helpful to have a switch also. This panel mod easily attaches to under-side (using landing-gear thumb-screws). Section supports can be cut to triangles and face will still be sturdy.

Various male/female red JST plugs so it is easily removable.

Same basic idea should work on other frames. I'm leaving the small area directly behind gimbal free for a possible auxiliary 7.4v battery.

This is also a good pic of my new Landing Gear - Extended Rubber Feet. (see comparison)


  1. What I like about FPV is that I can use all stock hardware to achieve super simple installations. I like your setup; it looks operational. Thanks for the tips. I also found some exceptional FPV quadcopters for the money here:
