My second build (in the 200+-class). After i've built a very low-cost (but fun!) realacc x210 i felt like building something with (even) nicer parts. :) Since I was able to learn quite a bit about the basics during tinkering the realacc, I wanted to try to build it a bit more tidy this time.

nice build, out of interest what does it weigh?

Thanks! 380g without battery. Guess I could have saved a few g here and there, but I did not care too much about it.

Yea, I was just flying in insane wind with my action cam and largest battery and it was still fast though the wind was more of an issue than the weight to be honest

hey man, sick build! are you using the ppm or ibus on that flysky? im having such a hard time trying to connect my quad to sbus ( not really sure whether its the uart that im activating incorrectly on betaflight or the solder point that i connected it too) i have it on ppm as of now but i can tell theres a big difference in the flight characteristic. if you can help me out that would be great!

Thanks, mate! I had problems getting ibus to work on that particular fc, too. The reason was that the port that is labeled as ppm/sbus is harware-inverted which is bad for ibus. Thus, i did not use the pins on the half of the fc where the motor signal wires are located but the uart pins on the other side. This video explains it pretty clearly:


Afterwards you simply have to set uart1 to serial rx in betaflight. Hope that helps :)

Before giving this a thorough review I thought I'd do a teardown to see what makes the Taranis X-Lite tick. Without getting into too much detail the X-Lite is a new FPV transmitter designed to be compact and ergonomic. It's shaped like a video game controller but has all of the functionality of a traditional transmitter like the Taranis Q X7 or the Taranis X9D. It features OpenTX and supports most..

The Bannilite was a collaborative effort between Luke Bannister, AKA BanniUK and Falcon Multirotors. The Bannilite features ample camera protection, easy arm replacements and weighs in at only 72g. It even includes a spare arm and camera mount. It's an excellent choice for FPV racing and doesn't break the bank. The goal of this build was to feature a number of modern FPV luxuries including easy..
