Garuda 200 is available now at Falcon Multirotors!

It's a Garuda with a DTFc! This build turned out really clean thanks to DTFc's integrated PDB. The Garuda VTX holder keeps the FX799T on top of the FC for each access to change channels. Equipped with 28 LEDs, it can put on a pretty good show:

Whats the weight on this?

This particular build weighs 300g dry, but that's with the 3mm bottom plate. The frame weight for the 4mm with canopy and hardware is 110g, so a typical build would end up in the 320g range.

We have a race canopy that weighs 17g less, and the 3mm plate weighs 17g less as well, so I have a Garuda that has a dry weight of 286g with those parts.

The Rotor Riot CL1 is a community collaborated design based loosely on the popular ImpulseRC Alien and the Martian II. It's a low-budget freestyle frame with thick 5mm x 20mm arms, so it should take quite a beating. Additionally it provides 20mm mounting in the rear for a VTX which is a nice touch. It's very easy to build and perfect for a first build. The parts I chose for this build are a balance..

The EV200D is Eachine's long awaited follow-up to their budget oriented EV100. These offer a much larger 42 degree field of view (FOV) on 16:9 720p LCoS displays. This is the second goggle to utilize the LCoS technology behind the failed Topsky F7X. Traditionally FPV goggles use LCD displays, so LCoS is unproven, but Eachine did a great job implementing the technology. Features DVR HDMI input 42..
