I will build Martian II from spare parts that I purchased earlier. I will use 30mm standoffs.
I plan to use it for propeller testing (I am mostly interested in Amp draw) and possibly for some other tests as well (motors, ESCs).
I hope this will be once again a fun build and I will try my best to create another build video series.

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.
