What kind of flight time have you gotten with this setup. Very similar to what I'm working on now.

Awesome build! Do you have some GoPro footage for me to check out?

Great build! Be very careful with the negative pad on the mamba esc though. It comes off VERY easily.

Ive got this frame coming for a 7 inch build using the same stack. I think im going to design a 3d print for the back of the frame to hold a GPS and route an antenna up above the stack... This build inspired me so when im done designing the rear GPS deck il post the .stl link on here. Awesome looking build though!

A really cool build for doing low range with spektrum, nice buils guy but I'm not sure what this build are great long range, me I may put a crossfire or an R9m( R9m is cheaper ).

Super clean-looking build! Have you given any thought to your VTX antenna placement, such as angling it up so the null isn't pointing back at you?

Zoefzoeffpv   Mar 14, 2019 

hi br overbee, thank you! Antenna stil poorly connected, stil have to 3d print some mount so it's more upwards. gps arrived today but no more clean space haha

I've just "bend" the Vtx antenna up for now and it works wel

BrOverBee   Mar 19, 2019 

If you can find someone to do it, get an angeled mount made like I did for my Super G Plus build. Just look up my 360 Deadcat build here and you'll see what I mean. It really cleans it up and gives you maximum extension on your vtx antenna.

Pls let me know your thoughts or questions!
I found out the SPM4649T doesn't work on the UART 1 but does on the UART 3 on the Mamba F405

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..
