So this is my second floss. I never bought the V1 because I'm pretty harsh on quads and the thee standoff deck wouldn't have lasted long for me haha. I had the V2 which I loved to fly until it met a violent untimely death when it met a goal post on a football field doing a power loop, it was not salvageable at all so here we go with V2.1.

I freakin love the changes, the boomerang arms are absolutely beast (I opted for the 5mm thick versions since when I crash it tends to be hard and into something solid). The build went together great, the canopy was very well done and looks fantastic, and I've only ran a few batteries through it but Jesus is it ever strong with the 2405/2522's. Going to take some tuning to get it perfect but I'm very very happy with it so far.

Can you add a picture of the Axii's plug? How did you get it to curl around like that?

Nice work with the canopy/motor/prop/batt connector/antenni color coordination, looks sweet!

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..
