I don't think you need XT30 with 080x motors. It's just extra weight. Unless you already have it on the battery.
I have to admit I got this frame. Have the motors had longer wires I would have built on it. I thought I could route the wires along the catbon. But they were too short and I just couldn't make myself build with the wires hanging in the air. That never lasts. Dmitry has since designed a new conversion frame with arms going straight to the center, diagonally.
Hovering at 10% throttle is simply amazing but these things are strange. I think KababFPV suggests limiting the throttle at 70% or 75% and based on the one I have built it's about right. It's just doing nothing above that limit.

With the XT30 battery and the KababFPV tune and a 70% throttle limit it is so much better. you are right about running the wires in the air.. my most recent crash ripped the wires off the motor side :(

Sorry about the crash. Strangely, KababFPV's tune didn't work for me at all. It was SOOO hyperactive. I am almost on the default PIDs that are far off his tune.

oOooOO interesting how the fc is at the bottom. Does that give any benefit?

Not really just that I couldn't get the motor wires to reach any other way

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..
