Because I've never seen a 1.9" stretched-X with ducted propeller guards, I decided to make one.
I used the Eyas SX-2 stretched-X frame with aluminium propeller guards I took of the Toad 88 frame. They're supposed to fit 2" props, but they don't.

The SX-2 frame has the camera well protected and high up, so you don't have the ducts in view. Without the prop guards it can be fitted with 2.3" props.
It's a strong frame with replaceable arms, also available in a 3" version with 3mm or 4mm arms and dirt cheap. They even have slits on the back which perfectly fit the HGLRC double LED and buzzer board.

Powered by Sunnysky 1106 - 8000kV's, on 2s it should be a serious whoop.
Somehow the motors don't work on Betaflight and although it arms, they won't spin. So working on that at the moment.
Maiden video will follow as soon as baby flies.

Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

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..
