The "in-between" (QAV180) updated!

this was one of my proudest builds and was partly a easter gift (motors) and had three f3 flight controller till today. it's now equipped with an omnibus f4 pro and other lovely components. it was kind of frustrating to get the power distribution board connected to the flight controller with it's built-in current and voltage monitor.

I've moved the rx input from UART1 to UART3 to connect my runcam camera control to UART1. You might think: wait! Foxeer fpv camera and runcam camera control? Yes, it's working fine, like on runcams! I've not connected the GND wire to OSD, just the OSD wire.

What's left to say: I've modded the receiver antennas with better ones (recommended in the rcgroups)

This is an early fpv flight with an older build (omnibus f3)

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..

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..
