this is my design from 2018. Proved and flying like a charm. 8 minutes flight time with 1080p video recording. 3s and 4s capable- depends on the ESC version.

Really snappy and lightweight and not falling under FAA regulation due to the fact it the weight is below 250gr. more details on my blog www.scheisser.net

the frame has a special teardrop design to reduce airflow resistance. working on the successor, fully 3d printed with optimizations to the frame structure and weight reduction.

Thanks for your interest I tried a few materials. Started in prototyping with PLA but this was too brittle. The first flying prototype blue filament was polycarbonate. but this is a challenging material. the photos here show a special composite nylon glassfiber frame, but I also have some composites here. TPU I tried also but the filament I have here is too soft so the frame will not be stable. The frame feels quite sturdy but I changed already in my drawings a few parts to make it more stable. Goal is with the next version to get a superstable und optimized frame fully 3d printed as the carbon fibre plates are hard to manufacture and not everybody owns a cnc milling machine capable of doing such work. In case you are an experienced pilot without daily crashes you also can use the easy peasy PLA filament as it is easy to print and sturdy (but brittle as mentioned before)

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..
