so after using the 7" tft screen which it's biggest problem was the weight (had a tuner etc inside) was over700g all in !

so ordered one of those diy kits with the 4.6" screen and merged them with the vr goggles

much lighter and totally usable

after an hour and a half flight time (and a few crashes )indoors and out ,mostly fpv the x130 is holding up well and so far probably my favourite quad yet (only had a couple)
very similar to the x100 but so much better feel to it, hopefully last longer than 5 days !
changed the camera for one I had (for PAL and slightly better under low light
would definitely recommend one

so decided to turn the 7" monitor into some goggles ...used the monitor ,stripped some vr goggles down , and found a lens that used to be for magnifying a mobile phone screen ,surprised it worked as well

since I see led lights been talked about recently thought I'd show my hi vis Hal 2.0 off
all pics taken with battery under 3.80 v and at 1% throttle (enough to light bulb but not engage motor)
so goes a bit brighter when going

so instead of that shrink wrap for the boom of my k110 I have been using that black cloth electrical tape ,it's really good as it molds to boom and stick well ,not any heavier than shrink (0.2-0.3 g)

but came across some orange braided cable stuff feels kinds sturdy and again under 0.3 g .

looks a bit like fishnets ... mmm kinky boom

adds a bit more weight as forgot about the shrink at either end to keep it on ... ahh I'll give it a whirl

I'd forgotten the difference a new fresh set of blades make ... ahh what a lovely ripping sound

Any excuse for a photo opportunity ohh and the new canopy won't need cutting as stock weighs 2.2g
just waiting on those new tail blades
