If you ever need to replace your VTX check out the speedy-bee tx-500. Its matek OEM and RF tests show it puts out dead on the money mw values. Its also $15 with an mmcx to sma and an mmcx pigtail antenna. Mounts on a 20x20 stack... I ended up putting them in all my micros and honestly I cant beleive how they perform for the price

You were right. The bracket used as a spacer is perfect. Not a mm to spare though

The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
