We are trying to discover new possibilities with 3" racers and this seems to be a good way. The frame is just a prototype and this is the test quad. Just after the first test flight, we are impressed.
The frame is a smaller version of the Rotorama Samurai V2 frame, which really sets the limit during the summer. It supports up to 3" propellers and weighs 17 grams (which is 10 grams lighter than Meffie 3"). Yet it should be durable enough to survive some crashes even with bigger motors. The frame is designed for 16x16mm stacks and nano cameras.
For the test quad, we have chosen 1404 7000Kv, Foxeer Predator Nano and iFlight SucceX Micro. The result is impressive. The weight of the quad is 84 grams without the battery. So far we have tested it with 2 blades propeller and it flies like crazy :) We are going to test it more with different props and batteries, but this setup has a big potential to be our fastest 3" for this winter season.

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..
