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.

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..
