Had to , You understand ? dont you,
Charging liopos posting maiden now
Well that went well till the fc went ta ta , esc,s and motors ok ,.Spot the bent bits.
Im not surprised the fc went away , i have smashed it into at least a dozen builds.
Finished uploading.
The autopsy revealed a fried voltage regulator. Possibly some big caps may have prevented this.
I was running the air unit from the lipo. no damage there.they are tough.

1st of all, mad props to you for this.

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.
