I have not tried to remove the notch filter on the F1 FC, since the Dynamic filter feature is not supported on F1.

Assuming there is relatively low/no noise in blackbox log, would it give any benefit (less latency obviously) that will outweight the possibility of burning motor.

Just asking

Anyone have thoughts/ experiences to share

Little things mean a lot. Weight creeps up. Things begin to skew. But some little things look awesome and are worth the effort.

The seat back for the Ford Flivver is not mentioned anywhere. I made a template and found some black sheet called leather. To get a quilting effect, my wife sewed seams across lines Id made. These help the back look better than just painting brhind the pilot figure.

We thought we make a combo housing for the diversity, in this case the 1,2/1,3GHz and the 5,8 receivers are permanently connected. But thats not a problem because while using the 5,8GHz modules the 1,3GHz modules are automatically turned off.
Here's a render of the 2 housings.

Canopy and GPS mount is here, radio still on the slow boat from China. Also have a Pixhawk set up on the way. Might as well do it the right way the first time. More wait time. With all the snow and cold outside, will be a while before I can fly it anyways. Will post more when closer to done.

Here some infos on my next Project:

I already have a My Twin Dream for long range FPV and so I wanted to make a small platform with easy transportation.

As I wanted to review the mini Split I thought that the new Nano Talon was a good candidate, so here is what's coming:
