In this build I used a new Martian II anniversary special edition with some components from another quad I used to fly in the beginning of 2017 (Lisam LS210).

The intention is have a functional quad that I can practice freestyle without concern too much about a lot of money involved to build the aircraft.

New componentes:

  • Frame Martian anniversary special edition
  • RX FrSky XM+
  • Motor protetors
  • Matek LED and buzzer
  • Amass XT60
  • Suleve Standoffs

All others components are old and even the set of props I took the picture already flew one pack.
I just didn't like where the FPV antenna is, but with de pigtail on the VTX I really need to think the best option.

This frame is good and well cut, but I needed to sand it to get a better finish. The arms don't look be very firm even with the 3 screws, but may be is just may impression.

I hope you enjoy the build.

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success.
