This will be my first run at using the new FETTEC gear. All of my past kiss builds have been kiss v2's with individual kiss 32amp esc's on slammed aliens which had proven to be an extremely reliable, durable, and great flying platform. I've refused kiss 4in1 becuase of how many fires i see people post about; maybe its user error or maybe its poorly designed in general, either way, im going with FETTEC. With Felix breaking away from flyduino and starting FETTEC, this is the new hotness in the KISS world. I suspect to see new and better KISS boards coming from FETTEC for the foreseeable future. Flyduino has basically been radio silent since late 2017 or early 2018, seemingly.

Running this badass APEX frame from ImpulseRC. going all out with the Apex Regulator, Apex OSD, Apex racewire, Apex LED's, Apex Ummagod battery pad! this frame is extremely top notch. I am always impressed and pleased with ImpulseRC. you pay a premium and you get a premium product. You truly get what you pay for when you buy an ImpulseRC frame.

I am super excited to see what FETTEC does and hope they stick around pumping out new kiss products.

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..

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..
