***UPDATE 1/31/2017 - Just missing the ESC's and paint, and I'm almost done with the build.

Inspired by @LooseTransitor Martian III Jekyll build, I decided to bite the bullet and start my second build. I love the purple and silver accents, reminds me of Megatron from the classic Transformers cartoon show. This time, I'm going to go for a F3 board, the FuriousFPV Radiance, to utilize the built in 5v regulator and power directly from lipo.

***Parts I'm currently waiting for:

-RunCam Swift 2, which has a built in OSD and can monitor battery voltage.

-FrSky XSR receiver backup battery voltage monitor that send telemetry data to my Taranis X9D Plus

-DYS SE2205 2550KV Pro for power and to match the Megatron theme.

Updates to follow...

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
