Initial tests of this rig with 6" gatebreakers went really well, and when I put on the 7" HQs, it flew beautifully with a mostly stock tune. I'm getting roughly 25 minute flight times on Multistar 10C 5.2Ah 4S packs, and it flies a little heavy but still fine on a 6.6Ah multistar.

Why so much TBS gear?

bensonk   May 01, 2018 

Is that a serious question?

Yep - other than convenience during assembly, are there many significant benefits to using so much TBS stuff on one quad?

That's a totally legit question, and I'm really sorry it's taken this long to answer it. The short answer is yes, and the reason is super tight integration between all the TBS electronics. The frame I chose because it's unique, and I wanted a sub-50g 7" frame. The motors are a nice low kv lightweight but still powerful choice for spinning 7" props. Crossfire is mandatory for me, because that's the LRS I'm invested in, and if I run crossfire I insist on having a TBS Core OSD. Since I wanted to stay light and go with 5.8GHz video, the FPVision that integrates the TBS core and a unify pro was the obvious choice, which indicates a powercube. The 4in1 powercube ESC is the lightest option and definitely beefy enough to spin these motors on 4S, and the colibri race is just the flight controller you use if you're running a cube.

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..
