I basically picked a frame then went with the lighest component for each selection. the exception being the esc/FC. didn't feel like cramming some 16mm or 20mm FC on there, and the lux v2 is a pretty lightweight easy to solder full size FC.

I've got two sets of matching components to build matching racers. The only difference in the two is one has the worx bolt 2350KV motors (24gm/motor) while the other has emax rs2306 2750kv motor (36gm/motor). so one will weighalmost 40gm less. the heavy one is 280gm before battery, and just over 400gm with battery. The worx/bolt should be sub 400gm AUW. I'll get that build on here when it is done. Shall be named RIP 2.

I also got these motors used, so I will probably test them out but ultimately I'll probably end up with a lighter set of motors. although this will give me a good excuse to test some lighter dual blade AVAN-S props. I am still pretty sure I like cornering better with triblade but a few drag races could be fun!!

Also I have some 5050C triblades but there is no way in hell I'm using 5" pitch with these motors. 57amp per motor peak current draw. Will stick with dal 5045 race and dal 5x4x3 more than likely. silly high pitched props are for the birds, and hype-trains, and blowing up expensive batteries. not something I plan on doing any time soon.

You can buy a custom pod (designed by me) for this racer here

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..
