Rebuilding the Widowback! This was a fun build, trying to make a racing capable V-tail. It came out way prettier and faster than expected.

Where did you get that frame?

When you set that quad up on betaflight, do you have to do anything special because of the angle of the motors in the back? And does it fly differently?

It does fly very differently. It is a very swoopy quadcopter so to speak. The roll and yaw also feel very different as you have to adjust both if you want to do a perfect roll or a perfect yaw. It is a different feel but fery fun. You also need to lower the camera angle as when you get it to high, you will be throttling up and moving downward instead of up. I highly reccomend trying it. The otnly setup you need to do is tell Betaflight that it is a V-Tail.

It's very easy to build and perfect for a first build. The parts I chose for this build are a balance..

The EV200D is Eachine's long awaited follow-up to their budget oriented EV100. These offer a much larger 42 degree field of view (FOV) on 16:9 720p LCoS displays. This is the second goggle to utilize the LCoS technology behind the failed Topsky F7X. Traditionally FPV goggles use LCD displays, so LCoS is unproven, but Eachine did a great job implementing the technology. Features DVR HDMI input 42..
