My friend told me in Instagram, that this build looks like Superdry -brand product, so I named this build this way XD

I got this amazing frame and wanted to add my own touch in it.
I bought some camo car vinyl wrap a while ago and decided to test it on this build. The wrap came out really nice!
Quad needed some bright parts, so I don't loose it to woods on my first flight. I designed some parts, that can all be found on thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3923712

  • Arm plates
  • Motor soft mount/wire guide
  • Immortal-T mount
  • Adjustable antenna holder
  • Support piece to air unit front end
  • New front bumper

Weight with props and strap is 425g, with 1550 R-Line Lipo 615g. Not too bad?

Just installed BF 4.1 with rpm filtering. I just hope it stops raining really soon!!

Do you see any props or frame in view on the fpv feed with the wide angle of the DJI camera?

It feels weird saying I 'haven't seen this color combo before'. I have seen it on a TON of dudes out hunting, and on all of their gear. It's new in this arena, and your execution is tremendous. I'm particularly impressed with: the angle of the cuts/ends on your wire guards out on the arms, AND the way your tpu matches the board color of your esc. I feel like we are in this interesting transitional period (right now) that allows ppl to feel VERY free to add tons of 3D printed parts to their builds due to the inherent weight reduction of removing gopros. Normally when you learn to make your own 3d printed parts you want to go nuts accessorising, but you have to temper that lust with the need to keep weight down. For me that ends up meaning that I design 5 or 10 different parts that I COULD use, but then I only use 2 or 3 of them, since the other ones can be replaced with double stick tape, zip ties, or some adhesives that are all dramatically lighter. It's so fun, but then bittersweet.
I think in a few months ppl will be used to this new performance standard (no gopro) and they will get back to trimming weight aggressivly, but for the moment builds like yours will fly, and flourish, and be more beautifull than anything before, or that ever will be again.

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..
