Could you please tell me the weight and flight time?

JakubFPV   Mar 23, 2018 

AUW is 62g, and flight time is ~5:40 on full throttle

Looks pretty good! Good work.

Hi, could you post a picture of how you attached the cloverleaf to the VTX03? Also how well does this fly maneuverability-wise?

JakubFPV   Jan 25, 2018 

Hi, it has an u.fl connector so that's how you attach it, then I secured it with a little hot glue.
Its pretty bad maneuverability-wise to be honest, since it's low T:W ratio

I'm so confused as to what makes this a long range quad VS anything else? Just the fact that you're using an XM+? I'd be afraid of flying something this small very far. I lose mine 50 feet in front of me.

I think that the 5+ min on full throttle flighttime makes it long range :)
And the XM+ can go probably 2+km easily
and the 200mw vtx compared to standard 25mw on similiar builds

Fair enough. I think long range is relative. Considering this is such a small craft "long range" is relative.

Exactly :)

Very cool but I bet you could do 2km with a real battery instead of that zop crap. When zop says 850mah what they really mean is 500mah but the weight and size of an 850mah battery

Thanks for the suggestion, I think you are right. If I try a longer distance I will get a better lipo for sure.

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..
