I've been wanting to build another 4'' for some time, and when Space One put the Aurora on sell... I just had to build this sexy frame.

The first thing I did was order a TPU cam mount and drop the top to 20mm. It's a little tight but everything fit like a glove. I then added the BH 1507's to help keep the weight down and the power up on the 5mm frame. AT 178g's dry she still gets around the park with ease. I know I could get the weight down even more if that was my goal.

The Spedix F4 stack has been running flawlessly and my only complaint is with configuring the VTX....I think I'm still on 25mw. Lol

Anyways I hope y'all like the build. I enjoyed building it and think she turned out clean.

How do you like the Sparrow 2? I like the colors and FOV, but it's not as vibrant as the Caddx SDR1.

Which Foxeer?

UnderDawg   May 15, 2018 

Truthfully? For the money I like the Foxeer Arrow Mini. I'll be trying a Predator out on my next build though....

I've really been enjoying the modern CMOS cameras. They particularly shine on the HDOs.

The Rotor Riot CL1 is a community collaborated design based loosely on the popular ImpulseRC Alien and the Martian II. It's a low-budget freestyle frame with thick 5mm x 20mm arms, so it should take quite a beating. Additionally it provides 20mm mounting in the rear for a VTX which is a nice touch. It's very easy to build and perfect for a first build. The parts I chose for this build are a balance..

The EV200D is Eachine's long awaited follow-up to their budget oriented EV100. These offer a much larger 42 degree field of view (FOV) on 16:9 720p LCoS displays. This is the second goggle to utilize the LCoS technology behind the failed Topsky F7X. Traditionally FPV goggles use LCD displays, so LCoS is unproven, but Eachine did a great job implementing the technology. Features DVR HDMI input 42..
