Always liked the look of this frame and finally decided to treat myself to it. Not sure I want to race it though, not at my skill level anyway! So just going to put some cheap and cheerful motors on for now. I'm trying a 4in1 esc for the first time also mainly to try and keep a clean look. Just got my Runcam Split in the post today too. Looking forward to trying that out, see if the extra latency is noticeable or not.

It's mostly done now. Hover test went ok, just need some good weather for an FPV maiden. The biggest problem I had with this build is that Runcam kindly upgraded the lens to a GoPro style one but that wouldn't fit through the camera hole on this frame. I swapped the lens for a Swift 2.5mm lens but the image is not the best. Waiting for a reply from Runcam to see if the 'short' lens is available separately. It's flashed with Inav and I've ordered a GPS / mag unit. The OSD on the Omnibus F4 worked the first time I tried it but then went dead. Still trying to get to the bottom of that one.

V1 had several issues and most reviewers declared it an utter failure. Did Topsky fix the issues and are these worth buying? Let's find out. On paper this sounded like a wonderful new goggle. Unfortunately we were let down. The displays exhibited ghosting, the..
