The last time this frame was in the air, it ended in disaster. Now the LR Badger is back and it means business.

This time around, we're flying the beta Joshua Bardwell JBF7 flight controller. I moved GPS to a sidecar. The drone finder beacon is mounted underneath. It is equipped for long range control right off the bat with an R9 receiver.

The action cam is a Foxeer Box 2 and the armor it is wearing is a 3D printed "rubber suit" but I printed it in hard PLA and used a heat gun to soften it enough to slide the camera in. It is now a rock hard suit of armor.

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