I designed the KDrone V1 5zoll Racer (Prototype) based on the TBS core and used parts from different other manufactures to complete my builds.

My design goals for the frame were to maintain light weight, with max durability and good accessibility for easy maintenance.

  1. TBS Cube with zmx X25 2300KV (Betaflight 2.8.1)
  2. SP Racing F3 with DYS XS 30A ESC and ZMX X25 2300KV (Dshot600 and Betaflight 3.1.0)
  3. AIO Board HGLC F3 V4 http://bit.ly/2h6YrNj with Cobra Champion 2300KV (Dshot600 and Betaflight 3.1.0)
  4. Revo F4 with Racerbee 30A ESC and RCX2400KV Motors (Dshot600 and Betaflight 3.1.0)
  5. no name F3 Board with DYS XS30A and ZMX X20 2300KV (Dshot600 and Betaflight 3.1.0)

To demonstrate, the frame can adapt to a variety of different internals, I build 5 different versions so far by always using the same frame but different electronic parts beside VTX and TX and the camera.
I used as VTX the TBS Unify and as TX the TBS Crossfire micro receiver. The HS1177 was used to supply the video feed to my FPV goggles.

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..
