Trying something different today. 6" 6s HD cruiser. Not necessarily going for looooong range here, just something I can cruise around with at cool spots. So went with the Raggio Lungo frame as it had 6/7" prop flexibility plus some nice 3D printed mounts Larry's already made up.

Build was easy, this thing has plenty of room for everything. Went with separate ESCs to make sure the stack would fit but I think it's do-able with a 4in1 ESC now. Also check out those Demon 2207 1750kv motors. A bit more Kv than I wanted but they're sold by a local and brand new to market so I wanted to support them.

Frame edges are painted in my signature white trim. White paint pen covered with a thin layer of superglue. Protects the edges AND looks awesome.

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..

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..
