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.

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 :)

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..

At last, the Topsky F7X V2 is available. This is the updated V2 release which came 3 months after the failed V1 model from October, 2017. V1 had several issues and most reviewers declared it an utter failure. Did Topsky fix the issues and are these worth buying? Let's find out. On paper this sounded like a wonderful new goggle. Unfortunately we were let down. The displays exhibited ghosting, the..
