hows the motors? i plan to get the same but i feel ilike theyre too overkill for my 3" freestyle quad (also 4s). Flight times on that 650mah? cant wait for a video :D

Motors are sweet! Flight time will depend on style (how aggressive your style is). The way I fly, I usually get around 4.5-5 minutes out of them

You added a mic? What for?

I like live audio of the motors while flying. Its more immersive, more fun, and actually when you're listening to the response of the motors to your stick movements it helps with throttle management (altitude control). I like to use external mic's for this as opposed to internal mic's on camera or VTX just because the external ones seem to work better (that's the only job the compoennt is responsible for). So, I'm always looking for VTXs which have an "audio input solder pad". There's a few of them. The one I'm using for this build has it and is also an 800 mW VTX. It all works good together. Don't know if you're familiar with live audio setup or not, however, if you're interested I've got a video on it entitled "MICRO FPV DRONE LIVE AUDIO SETUP" on my youtube channel. Happy Flying Friend!

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays.
