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.

Stuff has happened and stuff has arrived !

My solar power bank has been re-paneled and is outside laying in the sun catching rays .
Got stuff for the DLG , so hopefully get that CG where it needs to be .
2s balance charging board is here ...
Those magnifying bits of plastic are here .

F3 flight board .. its 1s and 2s .. I wonder if I will need higher voltage motors ?
Oh well , I will be doing some Multi meter readings and hopefully wont kill the board ...

So looks like I need a ROUND " To It "

Just working on a FuriBee H801 review at the moment ....

my new mavic was shaking with low noise props,
tried this and it works! and costs like nothing and you don't even have to take them off to do it
(you can, for easier oil application, but I did not touch anything not to mess maybe mounting orientation and bring it into vibrating equation..this way only change is less friction between folding blades and central hub.
