After some time 'experimenting' with fixed wing stuff and multirotors, I became tired and found that I wanted to just fly and not mess around with shiz.
so I made this for some reason? idk why, send help

2450kv 6s 5150biblade plus qwod,
toooob2, in short.

updates: tuning required. with this setup I kinda guessed.

Anyone ever consider making the "arms" into winglets? Was thinking that while this wouldn't generate lift per say, it would help to keep the carft stable at higher speeds. Could also help with hangtime as the copters winglets would "slow" its fall.

Sure mate.

A few foam winglets will be all thats needed to prove the basic concept. Should lessen drag, wash and improve Acro hangtime.

Just be careful about placement and incident angle. If either is wrong expect bad things or out-right poor performance.

aaah, I hadn't thought about the effect that crashing will have on those brackets.. Super curious how it holds up

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..
