HD Deuce

When I saw Daltz was releasing this new Lil’ Deuce No Limit frame to work with brushless whoop boards, I knew it was time to jump into this world of ultra micro builds. At first I consudered a 1S build.... after I convinced myself I needed (wanted) 2S, I started wondering if this was just going to be a faster, more aerobatic version of the TinyHawk (I knew it was different, but I wondered how much more)....

Then I had a eureka moment. Why waste my time with crappy DVR? I’d build it out with HD recording. This would be my prop-guardless cinewhoop, that I could also fly like a bat out of hell when I felt like it.

To mount the Turtle v2, I settled on this mobula mount with a few minor adjustments. www.thingiverse.com/thing:3328095
The top HD/FPV pod pops off easily with three screws and two plugs.

The Tacyon 1104 7500kv are likey temporary until the Lil’ Floater 1104s are released.

Dry weight is 66g and AUW is 86g with a 350mah 2S.

May 12 Update - added Crossfire nano rx. No more drop outs.

July 7 Update - printed a new canopy. The Sanchez designed by Dave_C

Naw, its all good. Its held on by Bondic UV reactive liquid plastic. I’ve had a half dozen hard crashes on it, and no issues at all.

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..
