Beaver FPV gave me a Detroit Multirotors WP17 Prototype to build and give feedback on.

Overall I think this frame is amazing in performance but a bit tricky to build unless you go with a full AIO FC that incorporates a PDB and everything in one package. Separate VTX and receiver are totally fine but you don't want to deal with a big stack. Space is at a premium on this frame.

The flight performance however is quite impressive. It felt well planted and took corners very well with the stock Betaflight 3.0.1 PID's and my own rates.

I will be updating this periodically as I get more of a chance to test the frame!

For now I will leave you with this awesome maiden video! -

What is dimension between front to back motors and left to right? Would like a comparison to my DMR stretch frame.

Front motors are roughly 142mm apart and front-back motors are about 155mm aparts. I don't have a precise instrument on me right now sorry =S

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..

While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
