Karearea Titi (2" or 3" modular)

Since I've had my Karearea Talon, I've found the flight characteristics of vertically armed frames hard to come back from; I've tried numerous different frames but none fly with quite the same precision, it just follows inputs so beautifully that flying anything else around a track feels disconnected, so when I had the opportunity to build it's little sibling I was keen to see how well that performance scaled down.

The base is machined from a single piece of T7075-T6 aluminium and available in a few different colours, this one is Orange with Silver accents. While the traditional method of designing a frame usually relies upon cutting the arms and base from a single sheet of carbon fibre or wedging the arms between 2 base plates the aluminium base structure allows screw holes to be mounted vertically and thus, the arms themselves. Doing this gives the Titi not just a very sleek arm profile but also another additional bonus; that the arms mountings are modular, using the outter most holes allowing up to a 3" prop and everything in between, while mounting the arms on the inner most holes allows you to build the frame as a dedicated 2" flyer.

In my case, I already had a 2" so I decided to build this lil fella out as a 3".

Flight characterists are what I have come to expect from a Karearea vertically armed frame; it tracks wonderfully and being a 3", turns on a dime and is all round a pleasure to fly either around a track or doing a little bit of micro freestyle. Like my Talon, it has become 1 of 3 quads I never go flying without.

Before giving this a thorough review I thought I'd do a teardown to see what makes the Taranis X-Lite tick. Without getting into too much detail the X-Lite is a new FPV transmitter designed to be compact and ergonomic. It's shaped like a video game controller but has all of the functionality of a traditional transmitter like the Taranis Q X7 or the Taranis X9D. It features OpenTX and supports most..

The Bannilite was a collaborative effort between Luke Bannister, AKA BanniUK and Falcon Multirotors. The Bannilite features ample camera protection, easy arm replacements and weighs in at only 72g. It even includes a spare arm and camera mount. It's an excellent choice for FPV racing and doesn't break the bank. The goal of this build was to feature a number of modern FPV luxuries including easy..
