I will write more about this later, but enjoy the pictures and video for now.

Here is the HD video: 2.5K 4:3 h.265 60fps

Here is the DVR video. So you can see how the quad handles the extra weight and the voltage sag.

Hi, nice Build Dude!
Can I ask you a question? How is the All in One FC/ESC handlig the 4s with this big motors and 3x3x3 HQ Props. Did you not burn a ESC or Motor? Thank you for your feedback.

Cheers :)

Thanks! I was a bit skeptical about these AIO boards on 4s with 1404 motors but honestly the GEPRC board that I’m using is taking it like a champ. The motors are barely warm after a running a full pack and it is about 90 plus degrees outside. The same with the AIO board, I have NO indication that it is having any issue running it 4s. In fact, it flies smoother with 4s with the same stock PIDs than on 3s. On 3s I get some oscillation that is completely gone when I use a 4s lipo.

thank you for the feedback. Sounds good to me, I was a bit woried about the all in one AIO Board, but I will try it. the only thin is that i run 1404 4850kv motors....we will see :D

I was talking to another guy and he uses the same motor as you and it seems to work well with the HQ 3x2 Bi-Blade props. The AIO boards is handling 4s lipo without any problems. I can only speak for the GEPRC boards because that is the only one I have tried so far.

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. 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..
