Got rid of my Acrobrat and jumped on the Toothpick bandwagon. The Primo from GnarlyFPV is, imho, by far the best toothpick frame (if you don't wat to run 3 inch props). NamelessRC FC/ESC and the Amax motors (4-hole version) were locally available, so i went for them. At first i mounted the Unify Pro32 on the back of the Runcam Nano2, which appeared to be to close to the Crossfire RX. I was having multiple horizontal static bands in the fpv feed. After mounting both the VTX and the RX to the FC as far away from each other as possible those video issues went away.
After a few succesfull flights on Betaflight 4.0, i decided to go 4.1 RC1 and purchase joelucid's JESC (https://jflight.net) to enable RPM filtering on these BLHELI_S ESCs. So far the results are excellent. I am running 3 brand new perfect super smooth motors and one that has a severly damaged bell and makes weird noises, but there is no influence to the flight performance/smoothness visible.

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..
