[if you are building this, the antenna ear protectors are on backwards in the pictures below, make sure they are pointing the right way or they won't protect much :-) ]

Decided to build Banggood's doinker/halo micro brushless clone. The BNF isn't available yet, but all the parts and frame are, so I gave it a shot. Relatively smooth and painless build, but the cam/vtx combo will require some alternative mounting solution because the included two-sided tape was no good. Also, this is far from the lightest design for a 90mm brushless, so if weight is your concern look elsewhere. Otherwise this seems to be a pretty good, sturdy 2S backyard basher.

you have put the motors as 4x4x because they ship as a pack of four, it makes the price look higher than it should

looks like it was just a faulty solder joint in there somewhere, all good now! i disassembled most of the frame though to redo the soldering, need to put her back together now

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays.
