This screaming little machine was last seen in Sheffield Park in North Austin. He flew too few times.... But the times he did fly, he was fast as shit! RIP.

Based on suggestions by Beeb on the reddit thread, I'm changing the FC, ESC, VTX, RX, and Antenna. Hm..

I would really appreciate some prop suggestions.. I think i need something real light..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone!

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
