The Zip Tie Canopy Revolution is here! No really, zip ties and a little heat shrink build up into fantastic canopies. They're good enough that I've updated the 110mm frame, which is a perfect base for these canopies, to mount both 16 x 16 stacks and AIO whoop boards. The canopies build up with a nice finished look and great durability for the weight. The frame is available for both 3 hole mounts (for 1S and 2S 1102 builds) and 4/2 hole mount (for 2S 1103 builds).

1102 1S 1.5mm 3 hole frame

1102 2S 2 mm 3 hole frame

1103 2S 2mm frame

The build pictured is the 2mm frame, Crazybee F4 1-2s with integrated reciever, Runcam Nano3, Eachine nano vtx, HM 1102 9000kv, and Whocares props. Dry weight is 29 grams. I fly with a GNB 2S 300mah battery at 45 gm AUW. DVR is at the end of the video above, yes it absolutely rips. Note that the GEPRC 1102s are probably a better choice as the wires don't need to be extended, and seem to be a smoother more durable motor.

The canopy is super easy to build. It is cheap, durable, and highly customizable.

frame looks really good how much does the 1.5 mm thick frame weigh wit and without the canopys

1.5mm frame is around 2.7gm. The "regular" canopy came in at 1.4gm. I think a "lite" vetsiok of the canopy can come down to about 1gm.

Thanks! Figuring out this canopy has been the most satisfying thing I've com up with. It's rare that to every find some thing that breaks the usual rule: cheap, light, durable; pick two.

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..
