2nd bl micro ever. (designed built and flown within 12 hours of the last, send help) complete overkill of a frame. I'd be happy putting this canopy on a heavy 5 inch racer, that's how much of a strongboi he is. sadly the canopy weighs about 8g (very very sad) so I'll design another canopy some other time which is lighter. I also may have found the ultimate way to mount a receiver but what do you guys think? it also looks like an egg and or alien so that's neat

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.
