Brave man using Kiss ESCs, too many horror stories with them catching fire. No thanks! I hope that doesn't happen to yours.

I like those lobe antennas. I haven't seen those before. How do they perform for you? Oh, BTW we use Markdown for the comments and descriptions, so you can clean up the RCGroups link with this format: [Link Text](URL)

This BOM doesn't include spares (batteries, props, escs, motors, etc), and doesn't include all the various extra hardware you'll need for the customization.

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..
