My learner "aint care" whoop. Recently updated with diamond vtx and caddx eos2 camera.

With this update I drilled out the molded in board standoffs and used some m2 screws so I could use more popular twig canopies. I gained 5g with this update but Im ok with this. Also not 100% sure how accurate that scale is, it read 2g after I pulled everything back off even though I zeroed before taking these pictures. If it is accurate maybe I only gained 3g which Im really ok with.

In the previous version I used Dave_C FPVs gatehunter canopy printed with 6% infill and trimmed out the bottom to clear the HappyModel Diamond vtx dvr unit.Also rx and antenna have been repositioned since those images were taken.

UPDATE: I went back to a lightweight very much basher whoop set up. Replaced the motor - kept the r-xsr for now till I get a whoop board with an integrated rx unit.

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..
