HEY! Are you tired of battery sag? So was I! This is the product-- The "Finch 3" -- Responsive and consistent throughout the up to 4 minute flight times on 3s 650mAh GNB batteries (3 minutes uses about 450mAh) with no sag or fade whatsoever. Best still is it comes in under 240g (this means weight for a split cam if you have the extra change and want to figure out how to fit it)!

Build notes:
-Stock motor screws are a little short for comfort, "borrowed" some longer ones from my avenger motors--Don't forget the loctite!
-Antenna is a little floppy and has resulted in several prop strikes-- bending the antenna more upright has temporarily fixed the issue along with a bit of tape around the antenna through the hole in the back of the frame.
-sorry for messy wires, still working on cleaner building
Video with the 25mW setting (forgot to change it for todays flight):


Enjoy!

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..
