This is my first attempt at a full coverage 3d printable pod. It prints sort of folded open with a living hinge that is actually quite sturdy despite its appearance. It is designed around a 20x20 stack, Runcam Split Mini, and an 18x18 gps with long range in mind. Immortal T mounts acrorss the rear legs and room for Crossfire Nano or R9 Mini in the end of the tail,, but it will take an R9 Slim in the neck. Originally designed around the Unify, I was having trouble with mine, so I crammed a Mach 2 up there. It works fine but I'll be revising the design to better fit a larger vtx. It can carry a Gopro Session securely if that's preferable to the Split. I want to flesh out the compartments to fit everything more securely, make the neck a little thicker inside, make the cam angle adjustable, and a few other things.

This is a work in progress. I will upload it to thingiverse when complete.

Do you have any issues with jello in your split footage? I have been hearing a lot of issues people have with the system now are down to that and I wonder how your mount is working out?

I had terrible jello. Replacing the lens with the RC23M solved it for me. Now only a bent prop or other actual vibration issue will cause jello.

Fascinating. Do you run a gopro with the split in there?

Awesome work with the print.  Can your ESC handle those motors and 5048 props?  I'm always interested in compact 4in1 options.

yeah it does great! i can punch it for a good long time. I fly pretty calmly most of the time though.

The Aomway Commander V2s are the 2018 followup to the successful Aomway Commander V1 FPV headset. 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..
