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 even includes a spare arm and camera mount. It's an excellent choice for FPV racing and doesn't break the bank. The goal of this build was to feature a number of modern FPV luxuries including easy..
