LiPo for 3DR IRIS R/C transmitter

IRIS pilots will quickly get tired of buying Alkaline AA batteries for the R/C transmitter and will also realize that this can turn into a costly part of our hobby. Time to replace these batteries with a Lipo.

Tablet mount for IRIS radio

I use a Google Nexus 7 as Ground Control Station (GCS) together with my 3DR IRIS R/C radio transmitter. Initially I placed the tablet on the ground next to me while flying and solely listened to the voice commands. This was not a desirable setup as I prefer to look at the screen while flying. In this post I’ll show you how to solve this challenge and mount the Nexus 7 table to the R/C radio transmitter.
