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

Thanks!

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.

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.

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..
