MaximusFPV Byte Size (2" Stretch X)

REMEMBER THE MODULUS 65?
Well this is him now. Feel old yet?
Jokes aside, I basically just got sick of spending my life savings on 40mm props that either fell apart after one crash or just flew like crap. This Anubis deserves so much more.
So I sat down with my laptop and spent about 15 minutes in Fusion 360 drawing up a little 2" stretch X. Why? Because I have loads of 2" props, specifically these Cyclones (they're backups for when I run out of HQs) and I've never flown a stretch before so I said "hey, why not?" After that, I spent a couple of days designing little accessories for it, like scuff guards that print around the frame à la Andy Shen, different camera mounts, and other little stuff just for fun.

THE BUILD
This was refreshingly simple, actually. I just lengthened the wires on my motors from the Modulus and then dropped everything else right in after giving it a healthy coat of conformal coating. Pretty simple.

OTHER STUFF
Stretch X is a totally new beast for me. This is the first time I've ever messed with different pitch and roll rates (super rates, to be more precise) but it's actually pretty fun. The idea for me is to make it feel like the true X I'm used to wile having the benefits of a stretch. Either way, I do like having something a bit different for a change.
This frame is available for free down in the parts list because I'm too lazy to sell it. I made a Thingiverse page with all the accessories and a DXF so you can cut your own frame. All the accessories are for a 2mm frame which I recommend for a lighter setup like mine. 3mm can be used for 1104 motors or 3S (if any stacks this size even support it).

The Rotor Riot CL1 is a community collaborated design based loosely on the popular ImpulseRC Alien and the Martian II. It's a low-budget freestyle frame with thick 5mm x 20mm arms, so it should take quite a beating. Additionally it provides 20mm mounting in the rear for a VTX which is a nice touch. It's very easy to build and perfect for a first build. The parts I chose for this build are a balance..

The EV200D is Eachine's long awaited follow-up to their budget oriented EV100. These offer a much larger 42 degree field of view (FOV) on 16:9 720p LCoS displays. This is the second goggle to utilize the LCoS technology behind the failed Topsky F7X. Traditionally FPV goggles use LCD displays, so LCoS is unproven, but Eachine did a great job implementing the technology. Features DVR HDMI input 42..
