The one quad thats been missing from my fleet has been a 6'' , and so I picked the Diatone 2018 GT to fill that gap. I really like the 6mm interchangeable arms and flip up hood. Im sure that will come in handy down the line.

I took her out last weekend and flew a few packs and I have to say that I was really inpressed. I love how nimble this stretch X flies and still be able to just cruise around at speed. I may build the mini-me 3'' version next. I hear those little SunnySky 1408's rock.

Pimp, they are the 2480 kv and I got between 3 and 3.5min on the HQ's the few times I run them. .. I have a set of 6'' Butter Cutters I need to dig up and try.

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..

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..
