This build was meant as a solution to mount everything that is needed for OpenHD to the handheld Taranis X9D Transmitter.
All hardware is neatly contained in a custom milled aluminum enclose which also acts as a heat sink for the Raspberry’s CPU. The system still fits snugly into the Taranis transport case. The stock Taranis battery (NiMh) was replaced with two 25650 LiIon cells. Battery lasts for about 6h non-stop operation.
Pros: compact, robust, no cables, extended battery life
Cons: still external HD-Display / Goggles needed, USB-Port occupied by RPi (no USB-configuration of Taranis anymore),no telemetry on Taranis display (see issue #125)
