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.

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?

Unfortunately we were let down. The displays exhibited ghosting, the..

The ThinkTank FPV Airport Helipak is the premier travel bag for FPV enthusiasts. I've taken this bag across the country and around the world, and I really can't imagine a better pack for the job. It's huge. It's the size of a carry-on luggage, and it's designed specifically for FPV. It offers customizable compartments that can store a handful of quads, a transmitter or two, a couple sets of goggles,..
