I initially wanted a 3" ultralight LR build, but due to the limitations of the FC (not enough UARTS), it will remain a micro freestyle quad for now.I wanted a 3" toothpick, and this frame was an obvious choice. A not-so-easy build, due to the 16x16 stack size, and the creativity involved to stuff everything under the pod. I wouldn't recommend ths build to beginners.

Some issues with this build:
USB port won't be easily accessible since the standoffs are in the way.
FC can only support SBUS for Crossfire, meaning that you will lose all telemetry control for LUA Scripts. RSSI/LQ is still available though.
VTX will get really, really hot.

Now to tune it out and make it fly like a mini quad. Purposely chose the parts to actually add some weight to the build, which means this is 160g AUW with 4s 450mah. The intention is that the weight adds a bit more hangtime, to almost 5"-like qualities. Loving it.

If you have a Tbs Nano 32 you can run the smart audio to Channel 4 on the xfire nano. That frees up TX2 and then you can reassign PPM to RX2. I'm doing a similar build but haven't tested it yet. I also could be completely wrong as this is my first build but this is my theory/understanding for what its worth.

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..
