6" Flynoceros Aether

I decided to do a 6" build and love the Flynoceros frames, so the Aether was a no-brainer. This has to be the most versatile frame on the market, with the option of 3" to 8" arms, 36mmX 36mm or 20mm X 20mm mounting for flight stack and any size FPV camera. Also an infinite choice of vtx and standoff locations. The one thing that stands out as different on this build is the use of the WhiteNoise Unify Pro/FRSKY R-XSR mounting board on top of the DALRC ESC/F405 stack . Together with the TBS Racewire (also a WhiteNoise product) made for a nice clean build.

Super clean! Do you fly with exposed solder points on the racewire? I'm using racewire also but love the added bling if covering the solder points isn't necessary.

Sorry I'm late getting back to you, been on vacation. So yeah, I just leave them exposed. My thinking is that they don't really need any moisture protection and any kind of a strike is going to just cut through liquid electrical tape anyhow.

Nice use of white. I'd do more white builds if it wasn't so difficult to photograph them.

Before giving this a thorough review I thought I'd do a teardown to see what makes the Taranis X-Lite tick. Without getting into too much detail the X-Lite is a new FPV transmitter designed to be compact and ergonomic. It's shaped like a video game controller but has all of the functionality of a traditional transmitter like the Taranis Q X7 or the Taranis X9D. It features OpenTX and supports most..

The Bannilite was a collaborative effort between Luke Bannister, AKA BanniUK and Falcon Multirotors. The Bannilite features ample camera protection, easy arm replacements and weighs in at only 72g. It even includes a spare arm and camera mount. It's an excellent choice for FPV racing and doesn't break the bank. The goal of this build was to feature a number of modern FPV luxuries including easy..
