Had to test the new badger frame, since i have built almost all armattan freestyle frames.
On this build, I will also test the new DJI digital fpv system.
I draw a special mount to DJI air unit. to be able to mount the esc nicely, I draw a mount, that moves the 2stack 9mm towards the front. This mount also includes a place for 10mm diameter capacitor.
Antennas are mounted to special mount, that is held in place by rear standoffs.

Great build, Q: were the printed shark gills on the DJI modual designed for cooling? That modual gets very hot at 700mw it would be a great upgrade if it did....still hands down one of the best builds that ive seen on here.

Sweet rig bruh. I like your prints, the shark gills are a nice touch. The stack adapter+cap mount is sexy, how does she fly? Could you ditch some weight in the antenna mount, it looks so beefy?

Thanks! No flights yet, maiden tomorrow. the antenna mount is actually very light, since it is totally hollow. there are 9mm holes through the tubes to make the 90degree mmcx connector go through. 👍

Did you get to maiden it? If so, how as it? Are the props in view at all?

M490fpv   Sep 03, 2019 

It flies great! 😊 First i had the cam too far back, so cam cage was in yhe pic. Luckily the cam attachment bars could be moved forward enough to hide the cage. Props are not in view.

how does it fly?

Do you know if the air unit would fit in the Badger with a 30x30 FC?

M490fpv   Aug 28, 2019 

some have done it, but they had to move the stack forward. I've seen someone drilling new holes to bottom plate.

Best build I have seen to date utilizing the Dji digital fpv system!
Can I ask why is the battery cable that long?

M490fpv   Aug 26, 2019 

Thank you! the battery cable is this long so i can secure it with strap. I have cut some cables in crashes, so want to be sure.

This is awesome, super clean and I'm really jealous! I hear you will make the prints available. Rad!
The only thing I would change is maybe the antenna. You're great a designing 3d, maybe make a mount that would allow the flexible MMCX to curve inside the mount to shorten their length and come closer to the frame so they'r not the first thing to hit on a rear-facing crash

M490fpv   Aug 23, 2019 

Thank you very much for your kind words!
I can do a shorter antenna tubes, these are for stock antennas. Also a sma version to come... 😊👍
I just need to find some time behind the screen.

Would you be willing to make a print that will move a 30x30 fc forward for a marmotte?

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..
