My Zuul Superbeast has been running for quite a long time, I have replaced several parts and now I decided to get more into acro flying. I really like the GoPro cage as this keeps my GoPro safe from sure destruction. I prefer my GoPro is protected over my flight camera as the swift is much cheaper to replace. This is also why I refer to this quadcopter as Canti which is the tv head robot from FLCL.
The four in one ESC is also the power distribution board and is capable of running Dshot600. I decided to add bullet connectors because the Kiss FC is so sensitive to vibration that everytime I crash and a motor gets bent it causes it to have a twitch in flight. The bullet connectors save me time when swapping motors in the field since I am still practicing to fly acro, once I feel more confident as I am crashing less and less I will probably upgrade motors and direct solder them on.

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..

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..
