First attempt at a beginner freestyle drone.
360g dry +260g with my chunky-ass battery.

AUW puts thrust:weight at in the ballpark of 7.5:1 with these motors/props.

I'll get a lighter battery once I get more comfortable flying

Did you run into any issues mounting your ESC's out on the arms? I'm just starting to get parts through for a Frog build, and wasn't sure if I wanted to use a 4 in 1 ESC or seperate units?

Tower height is limited due to the way the top of the frame angles downward toward the rear -- I would have had to go with a FC/ESC all-in-one or ditched the RunCam Split. Hope it helps and good luck with your build!

Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
