GEP-RC LX5 Leopard, with Racerstar 2205 motors and 30a ESCs. The gold metal standoff that were supplied with the frame are beautiful but I'd rather soft mount my frame.

The Runcam Eagle is a revelation, the picture is so much better than the Runcam Swift or Eachine 1000TVL camera. The Eagle second screw position doesn't line up with any holes in the frame so it is held in position with a single set of screws. The TX526 is not a good match for the LX5 frame. It can not be made fit into the antenna holder at the rear of the frame.

In the air it feels very similar to my x210 based build that used the same internals.

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
