Wanted to try out the Flywoo Goku Versatile F405 AIO on a 2s HDZero build. So hard to find a good 1-2s FC.
The Goku is expensive, but 6 UARTS and built in UART-based ELRS. Pads are relatively large for a Whoop board. Easy to work with.
Negatives for me is that I haven't been able to load Bluejay - so no Bidirectional DShot. Wiring diagram could be easier to read/easier to find on their website.

Had to trim a tab off of the FPVCycle toothpick frame for the USB plug. This is the 2mm frame. Hard to get as they never seem to be in stock.

The Mobula6 canopy is perfect for the Nano Lite HDZero camera. It's lightweight and adjustable, yet stiff. No jello. You need to drill the holes out SLIGHTLY larger to fit M2 stack screws.

What is the total weight of this unit, please? I'm concerned the weight will be too much for the canopy. and power source geometry dash

See reply to scirocco below, but ~55 grams or ~85 grams with 525mAh battery. No problem for mobula6 canopy.

Hi how about weight of this setup? I worry it is to heavy for this skinny canopy? plus battery....

Just uploaded a couple of pictures on the scale. ~55 grams or ~85 grams with 525mAh battery.
The canopy is a hard plastic. Maybe ABS? It is much tougher than what I could print at home with PLA and worth the ~$4 to purchase. I think the weakest point might be from drilling out the holes slightly. That said, I use this canopy on all my toothpicks now and have never broken one after several crashes.
The only thing I have physically broken was when using thinner 1.5mm thick arms on a previous build. I think the 1.5mm is ok for a lighter 1s build, but too fragile for a 2s build. I try to use 2mm on 2s whenever I can.

Yea... I am using Crux3 canopy bcus very light and fit for ANT camera! Perfect for light build until 45 gramm plus 20gramm battery.... over that? big risk 80+ gramm I prefere 3D print canopy..... but depends on crush... what and how happen it?
I am using very light frame 1,5mm thick... 2" = 4gramm 2,5" = 6gramm.... Twiglet...
For 3"? minimum 2,5mm or 3mm tick frame!! depends on 1S/2S/3S ?

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
