Golden Rooster

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

The Happymodel Mobula7 is one of those rare treats to hit the micro scene. Countless models hit the market every month, but this one just happens to check all the boxes. It's a 2S brushless micro with a 75mm motor stance. It's slightly larger than the more traditional 65mm brushed micros, but it's still quite small. It's ducted, so it's safe to fly most anywhere and it's got the power and control..

The Flysky Nirvana is a very cool radio. It has two enlongated grips, a color touchscreen, module support, rear switches, an internal charger, and a retractable antenna. When you see it you either hate it or love it. From the tall display to the rainbow anodized look it's sure to catch some attention.
