Here's a few simple physical mods I've made on the Solo system. The tripod mount is great to get that strap from around my neck for a nice relaxing flight. I failed to mention in the video, it's a 1/4 inch bolt that pokes through the plastic electrical junction box to hold onto the tripod plate. The customized backpack was done to accommodate the Alpha antennas without taking them off. Pardon the shake; I was holding the camera, talking, and demonstrating the equipment at the same time. Good thing for humanity I wasn't chewing gum.

Slick! Thanks for sharing! I really like the Alfa antennas too (they got me out past 12,000ft by themselves).

Definitely! Although being out in the high, sparsely populated desert doesn't hurt either.
desert=no trees? That's key to spectacular long range ... Big pine trees in my area attenuate signal quite a bit.
