Garuda 200 is available now at Falcon Multirotors!

It's a Garuda with a SirinFPV! This build was super clean with the Sirin providing the FC, OSD, VTX, and blackbox logger.

I used the Garuda Race Canopy (affectionately nicknamed the "race thong") and the 3mm bottom plate on this build to make it a little more lightweight. It weighs in at 296g dry with LEDs and a durable antenna.

I actually ran the pigtail forward and under the flight controller to prevent stress on the solder joints. The XSR sits on top of the FC, and the COB LED bar on top of that. There are two more COB LED bars under the arms, and all 3 are powered by the Uberdistro's 12V regulator.

I ran the current output from the Uberdistro PSB to UART2 RX and set feature CURRENT_METER, then set current_meter_scale = 183, and Sirin instantly showed my current usage on the OSD.

I like the new canopy. It looks less like a shark :)

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..
