Here is my latest build.... a tough one!!!! The low profile of the Rooster let only tiny place for the stack. I'm really disapointed by the VTX TBS Unify pro III..... It's my first TBS VTX and I think it will be the last!
This VTX is expensive, wire are in plastic !!!! Come on TBS.... for the price you can put silicon wire! The UFL connector is crap as always..... and the performance are not so great! Dont really understand why everybody is in love with this VTX! Try an AKK VTX! More powerful, cheaper (and silicon wire!!!) MMCX connector (the antenna cant plug out!!!) and great performance! I will switch as soon as possible my VTX

Frame:

the arms are sloopy.... i had to block them with a 3D printing square (cf in the part list for the link): next time I will buy Chameleon (monoframe! )

Motors:

The motors are realy nice: powerful and silky.....and so shinny!!! They look so great and perform!

Receiver:

I tried first, to put the TBS micro receiver on top of the stack.....but the rooster low profile dont allow me! So I decided to put it on the bottom....underneath the stak and the arms..... It was tricky to put it there. Now, it's protected, and I can reach the bind button from the hole underneath the frame! ;-)

How did you go about fitting in the aio stack? Did you need to make any modifications in order to make it work?

From my Rooster experience, as long as your stack is made of 2 chips you dont have to make modifications. Everything is included in the Rooster kit
You will need some extra work and standoffs

  • if you want to fit 3 chips in your stack
  • If you want the Lipo pigtail to go from out from the titanium cage side

I don't use TBS Tx, but I think the overprice comes from the fact the signal does not bleed on other channels
This means you can have more racer in the same time in the air without interference

If like me, you go freestyle on you own, it makes no sense to pay the premium.

Be careful with your gopro, the red case you used doesn't seem to have holes for the strap to go into..

I also built a rooster, I called mine the 'Horny Rooster'. I chose the matek Vtx for it

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..
