Monitor mount for Aurora

Monitor mount for Aurora

My usual setup when flying FPV is to have laptop running mission planner with image capture running. This works quite well, but forces me to stand in one place to see the picture, so I wanted something more mobile. I came across Procaster DTV-007 digital TV which at 45 € price is a real bargain. I wondered how to mount it with the controller, and my father came up with an idea to machine a mounting piece that would have a slot for the controller handle.

I drew the mount as two parts, first has a slot for Auroras handle and the second has t-slot for the display. Parts fix to each other with two screws. The part was machined in G-Tronic, where they optimized the part to a single piece. Overall, I’m happy with the results, the mount is very compact and stable in use.

Since there’s now machining files for this part, the design can be replicated easily if someone should need similar part.

    Hi, This is a truly great FPV device.

    I have an Aurora 9 and would like to have one these myself if I could get ahold of the display you have it mounted to or if it would adapt to ones that are available in the US.

    The 7″ LED back-lit Vizio we have here in the US looks nothing like the one you have.

    I’d appreciate it if you could list a source that would provide US availability for this monitor.

    Does the back mounting plate actually slide into some sort of mating slot on the monitor you are using?

    In any case, are you thinking of making the mounts for sale, and if so how much?

    Really nice part.

      Hi! It might be that this Procaster display is own brand of finnish retailer. It’s dirt cheap but has a poor resolution so Vizio / Foxtech display might be better. Procaster has a T-slot on the back of the display where the mount slides and locks with a single screw. This part needs to be modified for a different display.

      It’s hard to beat chinese with a price =) In very small batch, these parts would be something about 30 € per piece, and there is something similar available for $15 http://www.goodluckbuy.com/fpv-monitor-holder-display-support-folding-carbon-fiber.html
