It's so good! I have also got this frame couple of days ago and i also using R9 Slim+. I can't see where you placed RX. Did you place the RX bottom of FC? Thanks for sharing build!

Underneath the captain's chair behind the session ;)

thats an awesome build! if i may, how did you wire the hellgate to the fc? i have the same fc and buzzer but i cant get it to work other than just a constant single beep. i currently have it as bz- to bz-, bz+ to bz+, gnd to g pad next to led.

You can see the wires in the second pic, but basically +/- 5V and then buzzer -

Great work! What kind of range and flight time are you looking at acheiving?

Jeffmhopkins   Mar 11, 2019

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..
