Update: I've replaced the diversity receiver with a micro v2 and made a TPU tail to hold the antennas in a better position

last test: 20min with Hero7 onboard on 6s1p 4000mAh (Samsung 40T 21600)
first test: 27min on a 6s1p Lion pack (Sony VTC6) -

reelsteadygo test done on this frame:

big motor issue: contact surface with the propeler is flat and has no friction which combined with the fact that the nuts are low profile is the perfect formula for props coming off (untightening) mid flight. this is unacceptable for such a large motor which can spin 7inch props. V2 solved the issue.

frame issues you should know about:

  • 15mm standoffs are joke, had to replace them with 25mm ones.
  • captive nuts are not preinstalled as they should

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..
