Initially:

I decided to support local miniquad shop with buying their own miniquad frame.

The frame it self is from really nice carbon. All parts fit together very well. It is fairly easy to build although there is not much space. FPV cam is protected and there are also 3D printed parts included for HD cam and as antenna mount.

I used parts (complete electronics) from one of MartianII but it might be better to use 4in1 ESCs or Asgard type of FC.

So far I am quite happy how it flies although I had to use DAL T6040C or HQ 6x4x3 insted of Gemfan 6042. I really like how Gemfans fly but they produce too much vibration on this frame.

I designed and printed out antenna mount for FrSky R9m Slim receiver. I had couple of failsafes with R9M running on 25mW. After I installed newest fw that can run 200mW all is fine. So far.

I definitely like the frame. Give it a shot.

Change Log:

Date: 30.11.2018
I was not really happy how it performed so I used the motors on other build (AmaxInno Freestyle 7"). Then I completely disasabled it and was going to sell it. Now it has KISSv2 with KISS 25A 4in1 esc, Foxeer Predator v2, TBS Unify HV and Emax LS2207 1900kv motors. Flies great. It's not a rocket but I enjoy cruising and easy freestyle with it.

Date: 28.11.2019
I decided to use the KISS electornic in Flosstyle 5" to achieve lower weight. So this frame is now sitting on a bench with only motors mounted.

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..

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..
