I'm not finding any crack in the Parts List. Clickbait title!

In other languages, the word "Tattu" means "crack" or "meth" :D as I furiously look for another excuse

The backpack is horrible! You have to remove the tabs that hold the VTX in place on it. Double sided sticky tape is the only way to hold it in after. so i guess the backpack has no purpose really

I totally get it! My first display came off on a crash, even though it was very secure. The ATX03 is definitely "you get what you paid for". I just used some super glue to put it back on. No need to delete, I appreciate your honesty! I take criticism well. Although I just get emo when it's painful!

I'm going to try to re-work this for you!

No don't waste your time! I am realizing that there is a lot of cloning going on in the drone FPV world. I have an ATX03, but it has two resistors where the bottom right clip is on that backpack. I think i got a clone. That is where I believe my problem has stemmed from. I am just going to use epoxy and zip ties. LOL I will make this work. No worries! The way i fly, this drone won't last long. I will find away to destroy it!

Hey, I didn't waste time, but I did remake it. I haven't tested it yet, but I remade the backpack with a lot more in consideration. If you want to try it out, let me know what you think. I'm going to try to print it this weekend.

How do you like the 1106 Returners and have you experienced similar sized motors that you could compare them to? I'm having a tough time choosing between the various 1106's made by EMAX, Sunnysky and Brotherhobby...

I've only ever used 1103 (BoldClash) before, but I'm in love with these brother hobbies. I'm using them with 4S and they never come back hot. Definitely wam, but I can hold them. I will be buying BH motors from on.

What backpack is that for the Eclair? It doesn't look like the one sold on the Airblade UAV website.

I made it custom fit the eachine atx03. Once I perfect it, I'll put it on thingiverse! I hope you like it!

Yes please. I'd like to get one made for my own build.

I've uploaded the backpack to thingiverse: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2570201 - please download and try it out yourself. I wasn't careful with my supports and they broke off, but it still fits really well. If you use a pigtail like I did, I actually had to loop it between the FC and ESC to get it to fit perfectly.

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

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..
