This is my first ever build! very happy with it, and it flies amazingly! took me 3 months of learning, decision making, re-decision making and then a whole host of hurdles to cross to get everything to fit into this slammed frame. in the end a few laser cut parts allowed me to mount 30x30 parts onto the rear 20x20 mounting holes for the RX and VTX and the LED controller/BEC mounted in front of the main stack behind the cockpit. I went all out as I had the cash at the time (I don't anymore haha) I just love the Rhubarb & Custard colour scheme! With matching motors, Props, FPV cam, Kwad skids, motor wire sheath, handmade battery straps and Brain3D custom colour full accessory kit. not got the session mount on yet as I don't have the session yet. pictured with it on once then removed again.

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..
