Reptile Harrier S1100.

Not a rotorcraft, but it has a lot of similar parts and it builds the same, except for longer wires and gluing things together.

The inside of the wing is dense, Matek F7 with Matek wing PDB and not so good Matek VTX.

Very fast 330Hz digital micro servos on 6V.

Motors for 7"-6" 2506 2100kv with two 60A 32bit esc. Powered by two 3s or two 4s battery in parallel.

With some car vinyls in smallest size possible. Wings are detachable, the craft can be carried in large shopping bag.

They say this kit is one of the advanced ones. True. It is very advanced for the postal service. My box looked like she escaped from hell when arrived.

So it was just perfect on being my first airplane to build. But not first airplane to fly.

Working good, but I did not manage to throw it. I got COG bad for first time. I have managed to take off easily by vertical launch. But then the flying field was too small and wing so fast with poor turning rate, so I flew behind myself out of range.

I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. 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..
