Cheap MegaPixel build

This particular VTX was pretty bad, bleeds into every other channel. Might want to get a real Eachine one instead.

All my TBS vtx's bleed into 4 or 5 other bands... kinda stupid. It's so bad I can't tell which on it's actually transmitting on unti you walk hella far away and channel+band search

This thing was bleeding a lot worse than that. I own a few TBS and I have never seen a VTX quite as bad as this Gearbest special.

You almost hit those powerlines! I cringed when I saw that.

The lower ones are actually cable and fiber from the local ISPs. And I actually do hit them quite often. But they have so much slack in the lines and the insulation is so thick that it doesn't cause any damage, especially with a quad this light.

Seriously don't use that VTX. It was flakey from the beginning. And when it finally died for good, it took the 5v regulator on the FC with it. Now this thing is out of commision until I can fix it.

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..
