Stretched Whoop

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.

I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. 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..
