This is my everyday beater. You know the one... Fly, crash, change out a prop and then it's '' Up, up and away.''

How has this frame held up? I'm looking for a frame that does a good job at protecting all of its components including the motors. I plan to use motor guards to increase protection but I'm looking for something that can crash and keep going. I had a qav-x clone, and I broke 7 motors and 8 escs in 6 months (which includes the time of actually repairing it, so more like 3 months of flying). I was gonna order something like the RD210 from banggood. It looks like a good frame but I don't see a whole lot of people using it.

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..
