MISSION:

  • Small, Whoop sized
  • Prop guard
  • Brushless
  • Sort of durable frame

Old project, not exactly satisfied with the result, but I'm proud.

Being in the Whoop scene for a while and I found standard brushed Whoop lacks power in general , especially when one attemp to perform slightly acro maneuvers, fishpepper to the rescue! Paired with 07 micro brushless motors the main components are settled.

Soft mounting was the hype and I decided to jump on it with the design, and I took it to the next level - by soft mounting half of the quad. Flight controller and camera/vtx is mounted on the prop guard, which is isolated from main frame with the propulsion system with 3D printed TPU arms, as a side effect the build is quite durable since the main mass is not rigidly connected to where it crashes most (prop guard).

FPV system is simply a VM275T AIO camera, mounted on top with 3D printed mount. Other 3D printed parts are used to mount FC/ESC and battery, sharing screws when possible to save some weight, not the lightest build and flight time is extremely short, but the most exciting 90 second flights.

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

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..
