I had previously built out a STRIX Screech frame, and really liked the result, so when I recently went through a phase of upgrading machines to 5S/6S capable builds, I felt the Screech deserved a complete rebuild.

And so I broke out the printer and attempted to make it as heavy as possible, apparently. Still, as a 5S freestyle machine, the extra weight isn't all bad, the Screech frame is a lightweight to begin with, and anyhow it does fly very nicely, which is what really counts.

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.
