camera is quite vulnerable out there but i also have a mongoose with micro sparrow set with front verticals pointing backwards however i get alot of motor and props in my fpv image. does setting it out front eliminate most of that issue?

The Diatone GT-M200 is a racing/freestyle frame that features an aluminum alloy cage and 6mm replaceable arms. The goal of this build was to balance price, features and quality. It features an F4 flight controller which allows an 8khz gyro update and PID loop frequency and the latest filters.
