Mostly pictures for now but I'll answer any questions as soon as I can
The screws are still steel not aluminum! I grabbed them as spare parts for my KababFPV Glide frame but they look sweet on the gecko too!!!
I'm only using the high kv version of the emax motors cause i didn't like the 6s battery options available at the time but now that I have found that two 3s toothpick batteries in series make the perfect pack for this quad I'll probably fully commit to 6s and switch over to the 2700kv version of the RS1306B's and get rid of the 66% motor output limit. Even with the high kv motors I still get a solid 4:30 of hard acro if i use the Gemfan 3018 Biblades and then I can still fly another 20 seconds of cruising to finish off the battery at 3.5v so that after resting it comes up to 3.7v. When I switch to Low kv motors i will try the 3016 Gemfan Triblades I bet the power and efficiency will be out of this world!

It does indeed rip, but i can't wait to go low kv I bet it will take this to the next level! heres a vid from earlier this week on Gemfan 3018 Biblades. This was pulled from the first two packs I flew at this new spot. I ran low beffore getting to this awesome place but I'm going back for sure!

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..
