Fantastic build! You've made it look very stealthy.

Also noticed you got rid of one layer of the frame.

Yes I did! I recently had an accident with it but MKII is currently in design and is almost ready for assembly!

Have you gotten flight times longer than 20 mins?

Cool build! What kind of flight times are you getting and do you have any footage from the gopro??

Longest flight was just south of 20 minutes. I havent gotten adequate GoPro footage yet as I was having balance issues with the Gimbal.

It will come I promise. Right now the only video I have is from testing and I was having troubles with the gimbal wandering and binding.

Ive actually redesigned the gimbal to be a touch lighter and Im looking at the possiblity of smaller/lighter motors to reduce the moving mass.

Fascinating build! Does the position of the GoPro allow you to shoot video at any angle without the props getting into view? (GoPro superview too?)

Using 1080p and wide angle you get a touch of props at full tilt but my usual medium setting with a slight downward tilt keeps them out of view most of the time. I havent quite gotten the gimbal 100% where/how I like it but It does function.

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. 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.

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..
