Hello Folks,
I love this frame so much I decided to make a mid range low cost free style build. Sadly I do not have rolling plains or super large areas to really get out there for range, but for the increased flight times with what I have it should be great.
The motors are new and have very limited data @ the time of this post to go off of, but for the price I couldnt beat it. Going to try both 4S 1500 / 4S 1800 lipos to see what yields me the best results. Might even try a 4S 2200mah to see if the weight want be an issue. Amps draw should be low with 4S, but I have the option for going 5S in the future if im feeling frisky!! Any thoughts shoot them my way and thanks!!
Cheers and thanks for checking out my latest build and happy flying!!!

why bottom mount, and if bottom mount why not run antennas out the top?

I feel that the CG is better for the way I fly and for the antennas I'm just trying for better diversity since my new DX6 G3 supports it better then my DX8 Gen 1

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..
