Armattan Japalura 3" frame and pdb, RF revolt running RF1 32/32/multishot , with Rotorgeeks 1407 4000kv motors and some cicada bb2 20a escs. Build was a breeze. The Japalura has a good bunch of real estate. Setup was very simple and it was in the air in no time and flies pretty nice but I learned RF isn't for me. I much prefer and am more comfortable with BF but that's just my opinion. Sweet little ride though anyway!
Update: switched the triumph for a lumenier ax11 antennae.

I decide on CNHL 5S.These are just as good as Bonka's and Pulse race series.Really happy with performance and price.I live in Midland btw.

How are you liking the True C,and have you used any other lipo brands to compare it to?..

I have everything for 5S build minus the lipos.Seeing I am in Canada I was going to give the True C packs a try?

Thanks for any infos and really nice build btw.

Thank you! I only have the one true c 4s battery so I don't think I can answer that properly. I can say my friends ALL fly them and they ONLY fly them(i flythunder power(so I know which ones are mine!). I Used to fly tatoos but found they were way too hot when they came down. The "95c" was a bit better but still pretty hot compared to the TP adrenaline line. Since all my buddies rip the true c pretty hard I have to assume they are decent, I have a bunch of their 1s lipos for my kids quad(which I tend to torture a lot lol) and they are far better than a number of others I've tried. Where in Canada are you? I live near Toronto.

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..
