I love modifying cars so when I saw this frame I immediately bought it :P The parts I used for the build were just spares that I had leftover from other quads, I wouldnt recommend using the flight controller I used because the main battery solder pad spot means you have to mount the flight controller either 90 or 180 degrees offset which puts the battery cable out the side of the cab or the usb connector towards the rear. I'm waiting for my DJI FPV goggles and air unit to arrive so I can put that in; you can extend the front grill forward and it should give me enough space to mount the air unit in between the battery and cab. The only mod I did was melted the front part of the hood so I could get more angle out of the camera and it gets the battery and props out of view.

I always get a smile when I see somebody build this locomotive.

Love it! The "hot side pipe exhaust" look from the LED's is a great touch. Nice work with the usp port extension!

It was really cool to build, its my first quad that i actually cared about looks so it was fun to use LED's and take my time to plan things out a bit more aesthetically. You'll deffinitly need long wires or racewire for the front motors, the front arms are perfectly sized for racelite LED's along the body line which gives it that exhaust header look x)

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..
