John,

How do you ground your rig? Do you use a separate ground rod or depend on the park ground through the power cable? I was going to tie everything to a copper ground plate, then tie that to the frame. I've seen several comments before that the 5er should, in essence, float, but as soon as you put the stabilizers and landing legs down, you've grounded the frame, though not necessarily very well (I guess that depends on what you put the stabilizers into). Good grounding practice says to put as many grounds in as possible, as close to the equipment as possible, just make sure they're all bonded together.

BTW, would you please change my name on the list to Bob...Robert was my mother's "I've done something wrong" call to me. KI7GO's name is Sharon. Tx
