Product Description

This is the first public Ground Station from Mad Lab Industries, the MLI GS1. Several versions and trials have come together to make this monster Ground Station for Mavlink-powered multi-rotors, ground vehicles, planes, and helis. Built around the Intel NUC with a Core i5 processor and fully equipped for a wide range of uses from fpv to aerial mapping, this is the best multipurpose ground station we’ve made yet. Full Windows or Ubuntu OS’s installed and ready to go preloaded with applications like Mission Planner, APM Planner, and QGroundControl.

We’ve designed the GS1 to help you respond quickly and easily to any situation with a set of physical controls, giving you control of essential flight modes, thrust, and attitude control at the touch of a button. The GS1 features a fully customizable I/O system powered by the Teensy 3.1, enabling you to add buttons, joysticks, sliders and more at any time.

The GS1 is perfect for FPV. Dual 5.8 Ghz 32 channel FPV video receivers and a Diversity controller provide live viewing and recording of your flight on the Intel NUC, so you can see live video of the mission in the ground station without extra monitors and keep a copy for later. The GS1 even features a second video port for direct plugin to FPV goggles or an external monitor.

Antennas for telemetry, FPV, and WiFi are located on the lid for optimum range and positioning. Some antennas can even be installed inside the lid for quick setup and ruggedness. Includes Dual Telemetry ports ready for upgraded Telemetry modules such as the RFD900 Diversity unit as well as built-in 802.11AC Wifi and bluetooth.
