Dirty Falcon [185]

Fully KISS'd Falcon 185mm, 5" props. Making babies cry and women scream in fear.

I already have a couple FPV quadcopters that I love for carrying my GoPro's (see http://rotorbuilds.com/build/538), but I wanted something lighter, something as agile and as COG friendly as possible. Thus, the Dirty Falcon was born!

Birthed to run 5" tri+ blade props at mind bending pitches, this quad is 308g dry weight (no battery, no hd cam). Featuring a KISS Flight Controller and KISS ESCs, it sound is so smooth it'll sooth you into deep slumber, if you're not having a heart attack from its insane speed and agility!

Speaking of deep slumber, I really should be asleep at this hour. Anyway, some very decent soldering work there!

I thought everybody was touting KISS as the next big thing. Do you think it's worth the price?

If you're lucky and don't have any of the growing pains they're having right now, yes, I think it flies extremely well. But, if you end up with the the airmode-grind-noise, or mid-throttle oscillation, it can be frustrating. They're working on it.

Guess it's still early in the game for them. Gotta work out the kinks!

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.

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..
