God Mode 1.2 - Pav Pod with fin.

Request 20mm standoffs when ordering frame if using triple height stack, or use a different VTX (like TBS Unify Pro32 Nano and UFL AXII antenna)

Build Notes:

  • Will need battery strap(s), stack standoffs, large washer (to bolt SMA antenna connection to), electrical tape, zip ties, heat shrink, silicon 705 (or conformal coating - optional), hex drivers, solder, flux and soldering iron, to complete build.
  • Mount PyroDrone FC chips down so flat surface can be used to tape VTX to. BF configure board in flipped orientation.
  • Use 705 Silicon on the ESC to assist durability and longevity.
  • Mount RX antennas on zip ties off front arms. Never had problems with recption in races.
  • Loctite SMA AXII antenna onto connection (as can work loose). I used a 3D printed piece to ensure antenna cannot come out of pod, but could use a large washer to do same job.
  • To mount camera, drilled the screw holes a little deeper into the TPU printed pod so provided m2 camera mount screws had a couple of mm purchase on the camera.

Config Notes:

  • Runs good on BF 4.x stock PIDS and filters. Just dial in personal rates.
  • No ESC telemetry on Spedix35A, but UART available for ESC telemetry if required.
  • DShot 1200. Turtle mode capable.
  • Camera control via UART (FC is BF cam control capable without sacrificing LED control).
  • Tramp VTX control.
  • FC can run Crossfile or FrSky with SmartPort telemetry.

I use 1500mah 4S batteries (CNHL), but any high C 4S battery will work well with this stack.

Excellent race drone.

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..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. 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..
