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 Rotor Riot CL1 is a community collaborated design based loosely on the popular ImpulseRC Alien and the Martian II. It's a low-budget freestyle frame with thick 5mm x 20mm arms, so it should take quite a beating. Additionally it provides 20mm mounting in the rear for a VTX which is a nice touch. It's very easy to build and perfect for a first build. The parts I chose for this build are a balance..

The EV200D is Eachine's long awaited follow-up to their budget oriented EV100. These offer a much larger 42 degree field of view (FOV) on 16:9 720p LCoS displays. This is the second goggle to utilize the LCoS technology behind the failed Topsky F7X. Traditionally FPV goggles use LCD displays, so LCoS is unproven, but Eachine did a great job implementing the technology. Features DVR HDMI input 42..
