FPV Ground Control Station by Firehouse Technology
Firehouse Technology Portable FPV Ground Station (Drone NOT included). Perfect solution for providing streaming to second screen and Web Access for Emergency Response, Commercial Pilots or Public Displays. Fully standalone internally powered hard case, with storage. Smaller aircraft like the Mavic Enterprise, Air, Or Spark to be stored in the case for a quick deploy able package. Can be used with any Aircraft with HDMI out. You can stream wireless and provide Large Screen FPV Viewing for Pilots or Visual Observers. We have found its a great asset to have a second larger screen support personnel, this keeps them away from the pilot and avoids distractions, this is known by pilots as a "Sterile cockpit" meaning the pilot is NOT distracted.. For commercial use see a large live image during flight , and after flight use the screen to review your photogrammetry to ensure you have the shots you need before you leave!
Quick simple deployment, this portable wheeled case has its own internal power supply powered by a Portable Generator (electric storage cell) that can be recharged off 110 wall plug or solar panel. The built in 20" or 24" HD display provides sharp clear images. To use simply connect your RC Controllers HDMI out with the included 25' cable to the one of two HDMI Inputs built in the case. Cables always work and while we prefer to use a hard connection you also have other wireless options noted below to connect to the FPV cases screen. Aircraft like the DJI Inspire , Phantom 4 and Matrice series have an HDMI out in the RC Controller that allows easy connections. On the DJI Mavic Pro and 2 series and aircraft without an HDMI you can use a tablet like the Nvidia K1 or the DJI Crystal Sky or new DJI Mavic Smart Controller with HDMI Out. On the DJI Spark, the open charge port on your phone or tablet can be used with adapter (on amazon) to output HDMI and mirror the screen to the Ground Station. It also provides enough portable power to power screen for 3-4 hours before plugging in. It can be used to charge batteries, strobes, RC controllers, tablets and phones and more via its 2- 110 AC plugs as well as 4 -USB ports.
For wireless connections you have the following options: Fire TV Stick for Android devices (ver 3) or Chromecast. For Apple (IOS) users you can use an Apple TV module that allows you to mirror your tablets screen to the Ground Control Stations screen.

Wirelsss HDMI Transmission system (as founds on Amazon) are also an option the unit powers the receiver, the transmitter plugs into HDMI port , and small power supply used to power the transmitter on the RC controller. This
