This is the second quad I've built. I first built more of a freestyle oriented quad into an Armattan Chameleon 5" and it was pretty sloppy. I tried to get a bit cleaner with my first racing quad and this is the final product! I intend to swap the TBS Triumph for the stubby version of the same antenna to hopefully make it look even cleaner.

Super late reply but I'm 100 percent with you there. I love the props and they look cool too but the extra dollar per set really adds up after how often I'm forced to replace. I've been buying one or two sets of them here and there with a bunch of HQs on backup.

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.
