Twins!! Fast as hell. with 5045 dal I can easily get 2:30 of flight at 80% throttle, and land and settle above 3.7v/cell. purpose built to be fast as hell for multigp races.

If you want this pod, you can order it here

Did I mention fast as hell?

Edit: Just finished my own custom POD design for this frame + micro swift 2. I am now more in love with it than I was before. Flies great. Haven't checked new weight yet but I've stopped caring about weight so much (it's efficient enough and fast enough already) and now I'm just focusing on flying this bad boy on the edge. first race will be 9/23/17

Hi
Just wondering how durable those motors turned out to be? On the fence about getting some.

Minichado   Aug 13, 2018 

not very also hard to find and pretty expensive for what they are i love how they fly im moving to rdq badass 2206 as the upgrade

Thanks for the response. I was worried the light weight might come at the expense of durabilitiy... I see bolt rc also has a BH 2206-2350 that looks quite nice,maybe I'll try that.

That canopy makes the whole quad. It looks sooooo much better. Clean AF.

Ok you are going to hate me now, but you HAVE to find a way to make the hot lead on your battery connector match your bells (or at least make it black)

Minichado   Sep 27, 2017 

oh yea, I can easily swap the red wire out for black, and get a black xt-60 connector.. stealth as she comes... that would be siiiick!

you inspired me on my latest build, black bat leads and black XT60 :D

Any chance you have plans for the pod? I love this design....

hey! I am currently trying to get it printed and tested in TPU. so far I have only been able to print it in PLA which is not-optimal. when I get the design sorted in TPU I may sell them with a recommended parts list (only fits certain ESC's, runcam micro swift or the foxeer micro). I have also considered designing the same pod but for different, normal sized cameras but I haven't gotten that far yet.

Hey, I added the design to my shapeways shop

Clean build!! Love the pod...

Jodie Froster   Sep 07, 2017  

It looks GOOD as hell too! I'm thinking that if you were willing to move your cam foreward about 5mm you could drop it an inch, and prooooobably drop your top plate by 10mm

Minichado   Sep 07, 2017 

oh for sure man. I think I can come up with a small 3D printed POD for this frame and make it a bit more resilient and more compact as well!! build went together cleaner than i could have hoped so there is a ton of room in there I can cut out !!

p.s. you should check back, I finished the pod design :D:D:D

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..

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..
