I've been flying this quad for quite some time... it has been quite durable though I have trashed a few motors in crash tests They are sunny sky 2207's 2100 kv with six inch props. A lot of air time on this thing... just recently added the camera... about 18 bucks I think... works quite well... though still pretty much a rookie at the FPV thing. The battery is a slip fit and fairly tight and requires nothing else to keep it in place.

I bought a pair of used FPV goggles at Triple Tree Aerodrome a couple of weeks ago... I need some plus correction to use these without glasses. Bought a pair of plus 3.0 readers from walmart and cut some plus 3 diopters out of them... worked better than I thought they might though I may explore possibility of getting some contacts to use with them... but for now I'm in the air. These were genuine handyman type goggles... not sure what they were originally but someone had added the faceplate with fan and I added the correctives lenses.

The Spedix with bells and whistles... I was amazed at the performance of this thing

I've been fooling with quads and a few tricopters since they first came on the scene... had a fire that burned down a huge shop behind my house in 2014... sidelined me for a while... bought one of the Yuneec copters that revived my interest but its been a bit of a disappointment... capable of good performance but has been pretty buggy and proprietary battery that sucks big time. Sadly you end up with a pretty nice controller that you cant use on anything else. Would be nice if they would make it open source. Happened on a used Spedix with a CC3D at Triple Tree Aerodrome that got me back into Open Source flying.

Controller technology changing faster than you can keep up with easily... Just bought my first F4 controller that I have on a homemade frame I hope to add a gimbaled gopro just for grins. Gopros changing pretty fast too... faster than my pocketbook can keep up with. would love to have some goggles for FPV stuff but they are seriously overpriced in my opinion... has brought my respect for spectrum to a new low.
