So it's been about 6 months and I just now realized I never posted this... Oops.
Anyway, this is my own design. First time producing something I've drawn and it's gone super well! There's also an 110X version on my new website and honestly I'd recommend that one over this version, but this guy still kicks ass.

STORY
It all started last August when I was prepping for winter (it gets cold early in Michigan) and I couldn't find a nice indoor (~65mm) frame I liked that fit 110X motors (I planned on using Racerstar 1103 10000kV at the time). I sat down in Fusion 360 and made this thing in 110X flavor, but after some research I found that the new Sunnysky 070X motors were probably better for me than my 1103, so I did an 070X version as well. As soon as I posted pictures, people were all over it, especially when Adam Douglas endorsed the 110X version. Now here I am, a few months later, with my own website and a review by Nick Burns!

FEATURES
Onboard OSD
1S only
65mm
16x16 stack
40mm props
Optional prop guard

THE BUILD
I started with the Sunnysky 0705s but I found them to be too heavy and underpropped in my case, so I went down to the 0703 and it worked like a charm. I can tear up my living room for a solid 2 minutes with no worries about sagging. Other than that, the compact stack with the 4in1 connection cable made it a fairly clean and straightforward build. Another thing I really like about these guys is they are fairly cheap. I mean, in this day and age, $160 all in for a build with 4 sets of props and 6-8 batteries is crazy to me.

Juicy. I have a bat-100 that is on life support. This looks like a good second life for it!

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..
