So I wanted to make a spare parts build with stuff I had lying around. I picked up this frame for $25 on RC groups, there is one barely visible scuff on the end of one arm and the stickers are a little bit faded... pretty good deal to me!! What I had lying around was 2600kv red bottoms (attached to 30amp ESCs, DSHOT600 ready), an old broken vtx (no lights to indicated what channel or band it is on but you can click the button and find the channel eventually), an HS1177 that I had replaced with an HS1189 on another build, and for an FC some guy gave me a pair of SPracing F3 boards.

I had to purchase, in addition to the frame, the pdb and another antenna. just because I was short on antennas. Pagoda was cheap so I went for it.

I have only done a LOS flight so far, dynamic filtering is turned on and it's on stock pids. I don't plan on putting a gopro on this rig at this time so I think this will just be my relaxing freestyle beater quad. Honestly the frame is pretty light though, so it might make a good backup racer.

Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..

While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
