  • That should indeed go like stink. Cam/VTX wise I'd go for separates. IMO the lenses on the AIOs are far too wide and they don't usually have D-WDR. Check out the TBS Unify Pro HV Race Ed, it's light, cheap(ish) and super awesome. Light weight 600TVL cam with D-WDR and you're set.

  • Got everything in place last night but the Furious FPV Radiance is a duff one, Overheating badly! hadn't even plugged in the battery was just plugged via USB and it gets very hot! so hot you cant even touch it! then crashes in betaflight, really bummed about this so I took the Rotorgeeks FC out of my other quad will hook that up instead until I get a response from my supplier of the Furious FC.

  • Looking good, Cynabal.  ~~

    Tidy bit of cable management with the PDB > ESC > motors as well.  :notworthy:

  • Ok its together temporarily with another FC until i can return the furious fpv FC, 321g auw not to bad, gemfan 3035x4 seem good but got some DYS tri blades coming from bangood will see how they compare, has mad power punches hard and gains altitude quickly didnt go to mad as im not so good at LoS and had limited space.

    I made this with the intention of flying around our work car park complex but it just get about to quick lol. I think im going to struggle to put a camera and vtx so might have to lump it with one of the aio's with a 2.5 lense or something, will try and get some video soon.

  • I fly a diatone 150 lizard with tornados,so pretty similar to you.its my fav flyer and yep its super crazy for punchs.funny as i even got a radiance fc here and had trouble with it when daisy chaining 4 esc on a rotorx atom frame.it works fine but decided to use something else,then i saw this thread and because the pdb is in the frame i am interested in buying one now to put this radiance to good use.

    Its a great frame, I don't think many frames are this bullet proof, 4mm carbon bottom plate is insanely tough for this size quad some may say over kill, but i wanted something bullet proof to practice flying in AIR mode and improving my FPV flying.

  • A test flight around work, still some issues the sound is horrible need to look at that. need to take the training wheels of and switch to air mode.

    Binned the Furious FPV radiance it was crap, doesn't even support Dshot 600, so I bought a cheap F3 omnibus from banggood and I'm really impressed even has OSD! and half the price of the Radiance.

  • I fitted my radiance to a 250 frame,running a pdb,ran battery power wires to radiance from the power in on the pdb and its got 4 seperate esc on arms.cant try it as windy and wet so cant get to the park,it arms ok and other systems seem fine so will be interesting to see how it flys.

    I been looking at the diatone pdb/fc all in 1 for a 150 build in progress,it will run racestar 1407 to see how they fair up to the tornados on a different 150.

    I like and prefer smaller quads for some reason,perhaps its just me or the way i fly,i certainly aint a race guy.

    I'm really liking the small quads, similar feel to the 250 only downside really is no room for a gopro, keep us updated if you do make a new 150 build i'd be interested to see its progress.

  • I am building the y150,thinks its a y150,its the frame off banggood which is the diatone crusader clone.i robbed it of its fc/pdb to put in my atom so got to buy a replacement fc for it.its got racestar 1407 on it but when i got it nearly there i post finished pics.might have posted pics of it in the builds in progress thread in general discussion.

    Can't recommend this enough, cheap as chips fly's fantastic supports Dshot600 out of the box and has OSD it's brilliant.

  • I need pdb/fc all in 1,the frame i build now is realy tight,its not long body,its a xframe with build area not much bigger than the components.diatone one is around £25,i bought an holybro akute by accident,incidently its like the radiance so should be interesting to see how it holds out but no esc power onboard,will see what it like once i get it but i go with diatone pdb/fc all in 1 when i got dosh.

    I fly all pdb/fc all in 1's me bar this radiance i fitted in my 250 other day,yet to give it a whirl though.

    I got a thing for pdb/fc all in 1's!

    Yep,looks good and considered it but that was months ago,now they brought out a v5 of the same board for round same price.ontop that i got soo many vtx from banggood flash sales i need to put em to good use so need right hardware.i have mainly 7v vtx and most pdb/fc only have 5v becs so had to start buying 5v vtx,theres very little choice at banggood but i got with more coming.

    Some of their fcs i had probs with,the pikoblx micro fcs i bought only 2 and each developed faults so got trashed.also i bought hglx pdb/fc for like £27 and it was alright at first then stuff stopped responing,like the rx,so lights on board but no rx inputs,think it was battery,heat related,maybe even soldering heat related and a weak component,binned it!

    So sceptical on fcs from banggood,i got the radiance hovering out front where i live but not done a park fly yet but,i think i defo buy the diatone pdb/fc.

  • Really like the look of this and fancy building one.  What props will you be running?

  • Really like the look of this and fancy building one.  What props will you be running?

    Been running Gemfan 3035x4 Bullnose but they are quite aggressive, got some DYS 3030x3 Bullsnose on and they seem to be a good balance for punch and efficiency but are hard to get in the UK, got some RotorX 3040x3 on order to try and some HQprop 3030x4 to try

    had my first major crash today trying to do flips was a pretty hard impact, quad survived fine fudged a new set of props and I ripped the SMA connector off the VTX so will have to repair that

  • I got some of the dys 3030 tris on a diatone lizard 150,running same tornados,i think it flys on rails and has decent puch but straight line i am not too sure,am thinking the hqprop 3030 standard gave more straight line speed,which is obvious as they are meant to give top end.just an observation,am running dinogy 800 4s 65c but,i like the dys,they even fit on my atom (just) so got more inbound from banggood.

    I got some gemfam 3530 bullnose (just normal 2 blades) and the lizard didnt fit em.
