I bought two Flowride frames to make the international shipping from PiroFlip worth it, so after the compromise my first one turned into after the Asgard32 ended up being too big to fit properly I'm hoping to learn from it & make this one as tidy as I hoped the first one would be :)

The signal pads on the FC were a pain to work with (very small & pre-tinned by the factory with lead-free solder) & the Matek VTX-HV had to be connected backwards to the spare UART (eg I had to connect RX on the VTX to RX on the FC & TX on the VTX to TX on the FC, which is the exact opposite of normal UART convention). Smartport is connected to the LED strip pad with softserial (thanks to Oscar Liang for that idea).

The TattooF4S board needs a capacitor on the LiPo input, without it mine freaked out bad on any hard attitude change (flips, rolls, etc.). A 1000uF 25V cap & bumping the ESC PWM frequency from the stock 24KHz up to 48KHz completely fixed it.

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..
