About two months ago I stumbled across a YouTube video of a guy who built an X210 with a Lumenier Race Pod and I really liked it, so I decided to build one for myself with some parts I had leftover from previous builds. Last week, I ordered a Space One FPV Meteor frame after seeing a build of one here on RotorBuilds. Because the X210 still hadn't shown up, I decided to use all the parts I set aside for it to build the Meteor.

The Meteor was an easy frame to build. There was plenty of room for all the components and compared to all of my other builds, it's pretty light at only 314 grams without the battery. I only had a micro camera on hand so I had to get a little creative with the mount. I'm going to have some mounts printed up soon to push the camera farther forward in the frame. These will also give me the ability to run some more camera angle. Right now I'm limited to about 20 degrees due to the capacitor location.

4/16/2018 - This weekend I strapped my GoPro to the Meteor to try and get some clean footage. While it flew ok, the added weight was definitely noticeable and made the quad fly very loose. I ended up keeping it on for only one flight. Anyway, I got in some practice with my other quads and edited everything together. Considering I haven't even been flying FPV for a month, I think I'm progressing well.

I have the newest DX6 and I love it. I feel like I discover more things it can do every day. Thanks for the kind words on the build and videos.

Hey Doobie52,
Nice build and video(s)!!
I have a quick question which spektrum radio do you use. I have the DX8 Gen1, and dont get me wrong its a nice radio for what it is, but I was thinking of getting the DX6 Gen3. Just wasnt sure which radio you use. Thanks for any feed back!! Cheers!!

The SJ RG01 is a unique entry into the FPV space. It's unlike any other headset. What makes it stand out is its compact size and budget price. Traditionally budget headsets feature a single display requiring more physical distance between the lens and display. More expensive FatShark-style goggles use two small displays to create a much more compact unit while compromising the field-of-view (FOV)...

This is the 3rd revision in the "Wizard Killer" series of builds based on the Martian II frame. The original Wizard Killer was my response to the successful Eachine Wizard RTF quad. The Mark III supersedes the more budget oriented Wizard Killer Mark II and is the most featured packed, simple to build and powerful of the three. The base weight with props is about 326g and fully loaded with a battery..
