Picked up this old frame on DroneJunkyard and fixed it up. Featuring the old Naze version of the FC with separate PDB layer. It may not be up-to-date (I may update it in the future) but it still is a fun little thing to follow up on my full size tricopter build.

The FB 009 is a lightweight and compact budget FPV headset. When I first saw this I thought it might be worth a try.
