I wanted to try the new CMW RD5 right away and ordered 2 frames.
This is the hybrid setup with 6" rear arms.
I allways try to add some own spice to the soup, so I draw the canopy and added a detachable fin.
Now I can switch the canopy/fin colors freely to have some unique look.
Designed the fin to attach with one zip tie. It feels very secure this way.
Canopy and fin:
I tried several different colors on the canopy and ended to signal red. It jus looks gorgeous in this design! :)
I also made an adapter to micro AXII antenna, that is secured with one 2,5mm zip tie. Nice and easy!

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..
