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.

Unlike their predecessor, which targeted the FatShark Dominator V3s, the Commander V2s have set their sights higher toward the FatShark HD3s. Instead of 16:9 displays with a 32 degree field of view (FOV) the V2s now sport 4:3 displays with an impressive 45 degree FOV. And unlike the HD3s, these switch..

The FB 009 is a lightweight and compact budget FPV headset. When I first saw this I thought it might be worth a try. I'm never quite sure which headset to recommend at this price point, so let's see how this stands up. Most notably it includes a USB chargeable 1S 1200mah battery which is a decent capacity for an internal battery. The headset is compact and features a 3" 480x320 16:9 display. The..
