Lang range 4S cruiser. Set up with betaflight GPS rescue using M8N glonass gps. This rendition is a full rebuild from my previos 5.7 Alien that took a dunk in a river. Plenty of power and decent flight times as long as you're concious of your throttle position. The alien frame is a pain to secure batteries via bottom mount but can be done with the correct size standoffs uner the FC.

range is good. only been out 2km with it so far just testing the gps rescue mode. custom made rx antenne puts it way up and asay from the carbon ao LQ was 99% the whole way out and back. speed is good. fast enough to cover some decent ground pretty quick but still somewhat efficient. and just waiting on new gopro mount for video.

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.

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..
