Okra Gumbo

This was a build for a friend on the internets. The name fits with the colors and a favorite dish from my home town of New Orleans (some pictures of my wife cooking one included).

I did all the extras on this one for him, it is 95% done. The main thing left is to swap the receiver for his brand. I did conformal coating on the electronics, sanded and sealed the frame, fully sleeved everything, etc, etc and then undid one of those etc and did it again. This took a lot of mock-ups to jam all this stuff in there. But I am pretty happy with the outcome. Weighs in at 158g. So not my lightest 3" build but it has things like an SMA connector, a Tramp HV, and plenty of 4100kv power :D

The Tomoquads XBL2 seems like a pretty nice frame. It was a little tight with the parts I chose but workable. I am a little sad to see it go but it was a fun build.

The Mark III supersedes the more budget oriented Wizard Killer Mark II and is the most featured packed, simple to build and powerful of the three. The base weight with props is about 326g and fully loaded with a battery..

At last, the Topsky F7X V2 is available. This is the updated V2 release which came 3 months after the failed V1 model from October, 2017. 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..
