I must have built 35 or more of these over the years and it still is an amazing frame to fly. I own several builds still and I use 900 MHz, 2.4GHz or 1.3GHz for video depending on the situation and UHF for radio control for miles of flying only limited to my batteries (which can be up to two 4.500mah packs in parallel). I have several different antenna setups for best reception and portability ranging all frequencies from 900MHz to 1.3GHz for video and 72MHz up to 5.8GHz for radio control.

How long are your flights?

I can get 30 minutes or more on parallel packs and 10" props.

Thanks for the update! When I first started, I had the Blade Chroma 4K, than I saw an episode of Drone Racing League (DRL) on ESPN and slowly moved away from photo/video rigs and into racing. After looking at your build, it makes me want to go back. Do you have any flight footage to share?

Traditionally budget headsets feature a single display requiring more physical distance between the lens and display. More expensive FatShark-style goggles use two small displays to create a much more compact unit while compromising the field-of-view (FOV)...

This is the 3rd revision in the "Wizard Killer" series of builds based on the Martian II frame. The original Wizard Killer was my response to the successful Eachine Wizard RTF quad. The Mark III supersedes the more budget oriented Wizard Killer Mark II and is the most featured packed, simple to build and powerful of the three. The base weight with props is about 326g and fully loaded with a battery..
