5 Years ago i built my first drone, it was an F450 frame with DJI Naza M lite GPS... I did not manage to put it to fly.
After lots of hours lost on trying to discover what was wrong and correct it.. i just couldn't fly.
So i QUIT!

A few months ago i saw UAV FUTURES video on how to build a 6s 115Mph Quad.. and i thought... Well, it's time to try again!
I went for Granger's build, because it looked a bit more fancy.

I ordered almost all of the components from Banggood, and everything arrived with no issues. Some came from Ebay, others from HobbyKing.

I already had the Spektrum Radio, so it was one less cost. and i was going for the Skyzone's goggles, but since i did not have to spend money on the radio, i just went Fatshark HDO.

The Build was easy to mount, and got it to fly when i first armed it.

I'm basicly learning from scratch how to Fly, and hope i can get some good videos for you guys to watch!

Just props and dirt?Nice! If your progress is strictly in acro or los, then I commend you and wish you continued success. But if you are training in horizon, then you are in for some very frustrating times when you decide to switch over.

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..
