Built it for a friend who wanted an easy flying cruiser/trainer.

I like the new Ascent X HD frames, they seem very sturdy and the new canopy design is nice. It should hold up well.

The total weight without the battery is 100g. Not sure about acro but she's a fast backyard flier even on 2S.

Actually, my favorite is 3" Komori but they were out when I built this. Komori is back in stock. You should try this prop on a light build like this. You will not ask why after that. I am a big fan.

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.

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..
