EDITED: Added TBS Masterpilot Pro 2400kv motors

A backup quad build from parts laying around. It flies surprisingly well, 328g all in without battery. I don't see many Bangarang builds in here so hopefully this will help. A really sturdy frame, stretched X (I thought it wasn't) and skinny arms. More of a race quad frame, but still top-mountable battery. OEM 30A BLHeli_S ESCs which I can't find a link to yet. Designed and 3D-printed my own rear antenna mount.

I've broken one so far, but it took quite a beating to break them. The carbon fiber is pretty solid and does not break easily.

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. 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..
