Squishy, destroyer of worlds

THE BOYE IS HERE

After about a year or so of mix matched parts and 1 blown up esc, I finally have squishy in his final form, although it is very different than before.
It went from being a modded martian 220 III to a QAV R and now to a poorly-cut-but-still-somewhat-accurate Alien 5 knockoff. You may ask "why would you spend an extra 20 dollars to get the same martian frame?". Surprisingly, this Chinese amazon dealer made the frame based off the actual alien and not the Martian. sure the quality of the carbon is jack shit, has a poorly recreated top plate, and needs to be washed/ filed down in some spots but still, 50 dollar Alien.

The difference between the martian and the alien is that the alien is generally more slim and light, while the martian is generally wider and chunkier to avoid a lawsuit as it isn't directly accurate to the Alien blueprints. This same idea tended to be very popular with fidget spinners as companies could easily slightly modify the fidget spinner design and name and could get away with it as the original design is copyrighted.

Hi mate, are these blue props racekraft ones? I tried similar ones on my rs2205s but my motors didnt handle it well at high throttle. lm not sure if it was overproped or if it was an esc or battery issue tough.

yep, those were the RK 5051's. i think the reason they are so tough on motors is because they are pretty heavy and also have a ton of torque, resulting in unhappy motors

I program all mine on a 5 year old Linux laptop. What issues are you having with programming?

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
