Shutterbug 85 inspired

Just transplanted my SPEDIX REX80 to a self designed 85x frame (since I am not able to buy the 85x frame). I think it is possible to cut weight close to 40g - using a EOS2 camera, and lightweight canopy.

Setup:
Self designed carbon fiber 85x frame (~5g)
4x props guard (~5.6g)
SPEDIX REX80 FC / ESC / VTX stack
SPEDIX motor 1103 11000kv motors
EMAX AVAN 2" Prop
Foxeer Predator Micro v3 (3g heavier than eos2)

Weight: ~50g

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..
