I've changed several parts of the Black Shark to allow for 720p onboard recording and longer range. I modded the Cyclops with a lens from a Wolfwhoop AIO, but I'm still looking for the best M7 out there. Flies 5 minutes of fun on 450 Tattu, and Goes just over a mile and back. :)

How the heck did you fly fpv with the turbowing cyclops? With the latency on that thing I'd be better off flying los from a mile away lol

What's the weight and flight time?

45g dry, 67g all up. Odd that CNHL says those packs are 27g. I replaced the connector and mine are 21-22g. I can't imagine I took 5 grams off each pack, but my scale weighs a nickel within 0.1g

yeah i am planning on building a baby shark since it seems the electronics will be more protected. i was just trying to uage how mine would compare to yours since i am using a few of the same parts. Its good to know you can still get plenty of flight time with these lightweight micro quads.

Before giving this a thorough review I thought I'd do a teardown to see what makes the Taranis X-Lite tick. Without getting into too much detail the X-Lite is a new FPV transmitter designed to be compact and ergonomic. It's shaped like a video game controller but has all of the functionality of a traditional transmitter like the Taranis Q X7 or the Taranis X9D. It features OpenTX and supports most..

The Bannilite was a collaborative effort between Luke Bannister, AKA BanniUK and Falcon Multirotors. The Bannilite features ample camera protection, easy arm replacements and weighs in at only 72g. It even includes a spare arm and camera mount. It's an excellent choice for FPV racing and doesn't break the bank. The goal of this build was to feature a number of modern FPV luxuries including easy..
