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

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)

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!

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...

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

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

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..

The ThinkTank FPV Airport Helipak is the premier travel bag for FPV enthusiasts. I've taken this bag across the country and around the world, and I really can't imagine a better pack for the job. It's huge. It's the size of a carry-on luggage, and it's designed specifically for FPV. It offers customizable compartments that can store a handful of quads, a transmitter or two, a couple sets of goggles,..
