When Bob Roogi (KabobFPV) first mentioned designing and releasing the Glide Premium on his store, FPV Cycle, I couldn't wait for it to be released!  I had the frame for a few months before I purchased any of the internals. Providing for the family comes first so I took my time and chose parts wisely.  I had previously built a couple of Armattan Chameleons and a Hyperlite Floss v2 but I wanted this to be the absolute cleanest build I could achieve.  It was also the first time using a 20x20 flight controller in the front of the build. I'm very proud of the way it came out and it flies great! Time to tune and dial it in!

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.

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..
