An FPV pod for the SkyWalker that offers a custom mechanism allowing for full 180 degree (+/- 90 degree) panning without the need for any modifications to a servo or without the need for a servo stretcher. A full 360 degree pan (+/- 180 degrees) is possible with the addition of an NG Hobbies SSV3.5 servo stretcher (option below).
It has also been reported that this pod fits the "FPV 168" plane with very little modification required.
We recommend using HS-65HB servos
A support at the rear of the pod is available for your battery(two locations to choose from!). Although designed for a 620mAh 3s battery, many other batteries will fit in this compartment.
The pod is attached to the Skywalker by a combination of the tabs at the rear of the pod and a thumb screw (included) at the front of the pod that attaches to the blind nut that comes with the SkyWalker.
There are two locations for the pan/tilt assembly. You can choose a normal or forward location during assembly (see pictures).
When purchased with the pan/tilt kit, comes with a mounting plate that will fit many popular FPV cameras including:
RMRC-420, RMRC-420XV, RMRC-520, RMRC-LL600, KX131, KX171, KX191, IF Cam, SN777, SN555 and others
Additional back plates may be purchased here to fit RMRC-480, RMRC-540, IF OSD Cam, DPC OSD Cam, DX201
Note: careful routing of camera wiring is required to prevent binding during 180 degree or 360 degree operation.
This kit will include:
Laser cut components for the main pod
Thumb screw and retaining clip
Velcro strap to hold battery to pod
Note: for the "no servo" option, it is up to the customer to modify the assembly if required. The system was designed for TG9e servos. Any other servo must be aligned properly for proper gear engagement.
You'll need to supply:
Double sided servo tape to apply TX, camera, and tilt servo.
Pull-ties to hold TX against tape and for holding your wiring down.
