This is the rig I run on warmup heats, or heats after I've already qualed for finals or won my round. I throw a gopro on this, slightly higher pitch props, and get at least 3 laps of madness until I slow it down. on 1300 this struggles for 2 minutes but with 1550 it has enough juice. I never race competitively with this, I only use it for HD. It's at least 100gm heavier than my normal setup before I throw a gopro on. I think AUW HD in the air is roughly 580, where My racers are 400.

I have the 40 deg couch mount for the gopro. sometimes it's enough :D

The Aomway Commander V2s are the 2018 followup to the successful Aomway Commander V1 FPV headset. Unlike their predecessor, which targeted the FatShark Dominator V3s, the Commander V2s have set their sights higher toward the FatShark HD3s. Instead of 16:9 displays with a 32 degree field of view (FOV) the V2s now sport 4:3 displays with an impressive 45 degree FOV. And unlike the HD3s, these switch..

The FB 009 is a lightweight and compact budget FPV headset. When I first saw this I thought it might be worth a try. I'm never quite sure which headset to recommend at this price point, so let's see how this stands up. 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..
