I built a twin of my new favorite frame, the Floss 2.1. I'm using Kevlar arms on the front, standard on the backs. I also came up with an interesting way of mounting two 470uf caps on the back in a V using wafl's cap caps. Inspired by catching a big a$$ dragon fly in that spot the other day while practicing.

Lol, really cool how you did the caps and how a dragonfly got stuck there. How come your using kevelar in the front?

Available for $361 with coupon toyho at Banggood The Aomway Commander V2s are the 2018 followup to the successful Aomway Commander V1 FPV headset.

Most notably it includes a USB chargeable 1S 1200mah battery which is a decent capacity for an internal battery. The headset is compact and features a 3" 480x320 16:9 display. The..
