Do you think 5.5" would fit better with 20mm standoffs? I may give this a try. How do you like the R9 system?

After looking again I might have only taken 0.5mm off the frame. Not much, just enough that on flex it I'd won't hit the top plate.

I also filed about 1mm from the top plate nearest the props just in case it flexed that high. Not necessarily needed, but seemed like a good idea.

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..
