I decided to try Kiss setup so I bought Kiss v1 FC and setof Kiss 24a ESCs + Matek HUBOSD-SE and put it into my MartianII 220 with T-Motor F40III that was running Matek F405-AIO and Tattoo 35A BLHeli_32 ESCs.
The build it sefl was bit challenging becuase it involved lot's of soldering. Thankfully there are lot of guides and great wiring diagram from Phillip Seidel.
Trouble came when I tried to flash the lates firmware. Apparently you have to hold the boot button all the way and it took me a while to find that out. Meanwhile my KissFC was "bricked" and I had trouble to put it even to DFU mode. Luckily I managed to flash it and all works now. Kiss flies really great out of the box. I did not have to tune PIDs so far and video is jello free. Rates are bit different. I have to get used to it.
I also updated the frame with some 3Dprinted ESC covers and rear antenna mount. That was also fun.

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..

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..
