right after arming my screen went to static so I took off my goggles and saw my vtx smoking. That plus the zero throttle wobble, I decided to tear down and build again with higher amp but used FC. During the teardown the antenna pulled off the RX, so in t he meantime I threw on an xm+, replaced with a tbs nano crossfire. No buzzer this time since the buzzer pads got ripped off from a previous build attempt.
I thought I was wiring the vtxs into 5v, turns out that pad was 9v :( The smell of defeat :(. I rewired and amazingly the vtx is still working

updated with crossfire and made a holder out of a cut plasitc piece from a FC box. I heated it with a heat gun to get the shape. Its as rigid as the frame now.

I did the same thing with the vtx on that fc. The wiring diagram assumes that your vtx can be powered off of 9v. Unfortunately most of these micro vtx cant.

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
