So this is by far the best 3'' quadcopter I've ever flown... BY FAR.

It all started when a similar setup on a lizard 180 frame on 4'' props started to show its weak points. The whole frame felt like an air drag and I didn't like the mounting options available, not to mention it was a frame from more or less the stone age.

That's when a friend of mine announced his new line if frames and he said he was doing a 3'' one and knowing how big of a micro fan I am he sent me one for testing. I couldn't be more happy with it. It withstands crashes like a champ, is ultra light coming in at about 240 grams with a 4s 850mah, has super thin yet strong arms and makes us admire its sleek design.

The new vtx is amazing and I finally switched to taranis so I have 0 range issues.

Also the 3040 v1s props are the best 3'' I've tried without a doubt: they're super smooth, fast and controllable. They also can take a beating (I have not change the props yet and they're only a bit scratched)

thanks for reading :)

By the way red makes it faster so yeah

How do you like the AKK? I've seen a  lot of people have complaining about noise.

Mine works awesome. Haven't heard too many complaints about the fx3 specifically but yeah, crystal clear without capacitators or lc filters.

maybe not because of the 4300kv motors in such a light and skinny frame. Put some 3600kv ane perfect 1st

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..
