I originally bought the Eachine Twig 115 for a donor project.  As soon as the Tadpole was released I knew I would buy one. The Twig components seemed like a good start.  I wasn't impressed with the Twig.  The canopy broke on the first crash and the screws in the stack were bent.  I had lots of jello issues even after I upgraded to BF 4.1 with rpm filters.  This was also my first battery under frame design.  I really prefer the top mount battery, so the Tadpole seems like a perfect fit.

The motors may be underpowered but time will tell.  If I need to replace them I'll probably get some Xing motors.

I put the board in upside down from what the Twig had so the USB port faces up.  In Betaflight I had to set pitch to 180 degrees.  I also had to swap motor resources from motor #1 to motor #2 and swap #3 and #4.  Then I checked rotation of the motors and reversed them in JESC so they spun the correct direction.   Hope that helps.

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..
