I finally got around to building this quad the way I wanted it. You can check out my original build here https://rotorbuilds.com/build/21036. I upgraded from analog to HD and its absolutely amazing! The frame perfectly fits the air unit and a 1500mah 4s battery. I also got a 3D printer last month and luckily the people over at Flynoceros have uploaded all the TPU parts to Thingiverse :D I printed all the parts in Matter Hackers Purple TPU and have created two custom parts. The first one is the hood, I made a remix by merging it and an immortal T mount made by UltiBots on Thingiverse and the second is just a simple battery pad I modeled to give the battery a flat surface to sit on. The Zurple Gemfam 3D props are the last thing I added and they really brought the whole build together. I'll try to remember to get some DVR footage next time I fly for anyone thats interested.

Update:
heres just some dvr from the goggles, the camera vibration was from the camera mount bracket being loose.

I think you hit on the right application of this frame. Low camera angle, 3D!! I love the frame design (price is steep, though). I'm looking to do something similar (even 3D setup, but with analog video). How are the motors/ESCs holding up to the direction changes? Also, so cool to see the props change direction in flight!!

3D is a blast, once i tried it i havent switched back, i deffinitly recommend everyone try it :) so far i havent had any issues, i know the motors can handle it no problem because i use the same ones on my armattan badger that's my daily basher. The esc's i dont know about lol i dont have the osd set up because i didnt have any spare uarts so i cant see amp draw  but i bet it gets pretty high, its deffinitly a heavy quad :p

I believe it. Looks sick, top end gear, looks sick, and lastly looks SUPER sick

Fantastic upgrade. Even though this frame is inherently ridiculious, I do kind of love it, and it looks excellent in purple. Please, please post some flight video!

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..
