Serge from PiroflipRC personally gave me this frame backin the Fall of 2016 before they offically went on sale and this was why this story (and the way it all turned out) was so important to me . My bouncing baby Hyperlite was born in 2016 and went MIA in January of 2018 never to be found after over a week of searching.... Until this morning when it was stumbled upon by accident after almost 6 months. I did a thorough cleaning and inspection and she flew this evening again. It endured freezing temps below 20 degrees, winter rains , and early spring heat into the 100's. I didn't have to change or replace anything other than the vtx antenna. A couple motors are a bit noisy when spun by hand but it flew great. The quad was laying upside down under an orange tree all this time. the one photo shows it when it was found this morning and the other was after the cleanup. I missed this little sucker. Picture are of when it was found (Today) after it was cleaned up and flown, and when it was origionally born.

The Rotor Riot CL1 is a community collaborated design based loosely on the popular ImpulseRC Alien and the Martian II. It's a low-budget freestyle frame with thick 5mm x 20mm arms, so it should take quite a beating. Additionally it provides 20mm mounting in the rear for a VTX which is a nice touch. It's very easy to build and perfect for a first build. The parts I chose for this build are a balance..

The EV200D is Eachine's long awaited follow-up to their budget oriented EV100. These offer a much larger 42 degree field of view (FOV) on 16:9 720p LCoS displays. This is the second goggle to utilize the LCoS technology behind the failed Topsky F7X. Traditionally FPV goggles use LCD displays, so LCoS is unproven, but Eachine did a great job implementing the technology. Features DVR HDMI input 42..
