I've been enjoying my slow cruising 5" Marmotte so much that I decided to build a 6 inch Armattan Badger for long range with a GPS.

I originally went with the Holybro Kakute F7 & Tekko32 4in1 ESC 30x30 3-6S Stack/Combo but after completing the build the ESC would not report the mAh consumption, even though telemetry was working fine, so I pulled the stack and started again. This time I went with the Matek F722-SE F7 and separate Spedix GS35 2-6S 32Bit DShot1200 35A ESCs. The GPS is the BN-220, it's working great for GPS Rescue mode and flight data.

I drew and printed the GPS / VTx antenna mount and the 2 piece GoPro Hero7 mount. I had printed a similar Hero 7 mount that I found on Thingiverse but it didn't fit properly so I drew up my own. The Crossfire antenna mount, front bumper and arm guards are from Thingiverse.

The rest of the build is fairly standard components consisting of a Runcam Micro Swift 2, Xing 2306-1700kv motors, Rush Tank Ultimate VTx, Crossfire Nano Rx and Matek buzzer.

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.
