aka "the myrcmart special"

jumping straight into the 2" world of madness.

i tried to make it look like a watermelon (green motors, purple props, yellow antennae).

it didn't really work.

this build is 100% without a doubt my favorite flyer. 2" is great because it an accelerate to crazy speeds, corners on a dime, and hits gates like a whoop when you slow it down.

the build was a bit tighter than i'd like -- while i 100% recommend the frame, i would be more careful with your choice of electronics than i. it's much easier to build with a 2-board stack. if you have room, you could even smash it to 17mm, which would be super sexy. i could have built this cleaner, and it still has room for improvement -- i just don't feel like opening it up.

i would not recommend the motors, they're just what i had after my torrent 110 died. you can probably get similar performing ones for far less, especially considering they cost more than the motors i use on my 5".

i planned to test the frsky xm reciever, but it came dead out of the box. the xm+ portrudes weirdly from the side, as it's a bit too thick to shove between two 20x20 boards. i can't use longer standoffs since this build is tight as is.

my phone camera makes it look like a flip phone, sorry.

The base weight with props is about 326g and fully loaded with a battery..

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..
