Did a rebuild of this frame: moving to 4-in-1 stack, f40 flight controller, long range RCVR and antenna, motor upgrade.

This is my eighth DIY build. I've enjoyed my two Martian-IIs, but want to build something a little prettier. I'm a wee bit budget constrained and tried to get a decent flyer that also has some good features like taranis-based vtx control and nice BF compatibility.

Love this frame! It was hard to spend $95 on a frame (after my first two budget frames) but damn, it comes together nice!

I'm still working on cleaning up the wiring and I need to figure out how to mount my Runcam. Indoor test flights were predictable. Proper maiden soon!

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