At 240g AUW (with battery), this rips as a 3s 5 inch quad. Everything runs cool and is very responsive while maintaining impressive efficiency at almost 6 minute flights (without vtx). Can definitely cut weight in some spots!

Note: Pictures are without the VTX as I shorted it with a screw (Lucky me) and will upload full pictures and post flight times when I get the new VTX.

Update: Flew with a 3s 650mah gnb, just under 5 minutes flight time, a little harder than I pushed it on its maiden voyage (not great with line of sight flying). Check out my first attempt at recording a line of sight flight (missed almost every flip and loop, but you can see the shadow of the flips and loops!)

I was worried about the combination at first, but the aggressive props do well with the lower kv with the 3s, I flew it on a 4s 850mah tattu but it felt sluggish and less responsive but did get higher top speeds with higher motor temps as a side effect. In all, much more fun on the 3s!

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..

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..
