I had these Avan 2327 props laying around from a while ago and had no use for the since all my frames are 2". When I saw the Iflight 99mm BNF coming out I thought it could fit the Avans without the propguards, and behold it does. I ordered a spare bottom plate and paired it with KwadKarl's 65mm Bandito canopy (which was copied by Iflight so the front mounting holes line up pretty nice). Some tinkering needs to be done as the frame has tail that isn't needed in my setup.
The Mamba motors end flight stack deliver great performance. I fly it on 2S mainly as a cruiser.
The STX100 Vtx is rather bad, I cannot recommend it. The Runcam Nano2 is really nice, way better than the EOS2. Buzzer is hard mounted on the FC, because I was in a hurry but I need to find a safer place for it.

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..
