AstroX x5 JohnnyFPV edition

Continuing on my AstroX journey, classic "bus" style freestyle frame refined with skinny arms (5,5mm think) and pretty smart 1 bolt arm attachement.
Unfortunately the stack is not independant to arm bolts.

Beware, the landing skid with 5,5mm arms requires M3x10mm bolts (not included in the kit)
Time will tell if this plastic is worth the price or its better to go TPU 3D printed parts

  • Electronic

Did you cover the motors with electrical tape during assembly to keep solder spatter out of them?

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..
