This is my second build and my first racer. Bought the Bushfire edition to help with money towards the fire affected here in Aus. It was a challenging build for me as it was quite tight. I ended up going with some taller stand offs so there was room to fit the vtx and so I could elevate the stack so the camera plug was not up against it. In future I would go with a camera that has solder points rather than a plug. I have used cheap motors for now but I will likely upgrade them in the future. Because I raised it up, the antenna mount which usually hangs off the back of the top plate was fouling the props so I moved it onto one of the arms.

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.
