Barn Burner ( Strix Screech )

I felt it was time to build a couple low-pro freestyle camera rigs. The Screech is the first of two.

The Frame
I really like the frame for the price. The carbon is clean and the edges chamfered and it went together with ease. With a 20 deck hight having enough room to mount the VTX behind the flight stack was a added bonus.

Motors
What can I say about Cobras..... THEY ROCK!! This is my first time running the 2207's, but they are obviously smooth and have more than adequate power to carry the new GoPro that should be here monday.

I hope y'all like the way she tuned out as much as I do.

Very nice build*

how are the escs?

UnderDawg   Apr 06, 2018 

I like them.. This is my fourth build using DYS 4 in 1 ESC's

Aptivari   Apr 06, 2018 

They seem so cheap for a 30amp esc so i wasnt sure if they would burn out or not

Whiffles   Apr 06, 2018  

Does that frame have a 20mm set of standoff holes in the back?

UnderDawg   Apr 06, 2018 

Nope. Just some slots in the frame and it worked out that way. Strix missed the perfect opportunity to be cutting edge thouh.

Whiffles   Apr 06, 2018 

Yeah that would have been a great idea to put 20mm holes back there!

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

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. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
