Here is a video I posted some time ago... I think the quad was around 3grams heavier than present... The props are not completely balanced.. I will do that this weekend,...
v929 FPV (3 min 8 sec)


In terms of price.. This is off hand...as I have this equipment for some time now..
200mw vtx approx $20
Rx - anywhere from $15 to $28 depending on wether u want a DIY kit or ready to use...
Camera $25 to $48 depending on what u want...

But this system can be used in other applications including bigger planes with an osd etc... So it's not really an entry setup...

Of course you would need a monitor or goggles for a display as well...

Nice. Are the GWS props lighter or heavier than the stock ones?

I found a string of 20 battery operated LED lights at big lots for $4.50. It used 3 AA batteries, there were 4 each of green, blue, red, orange, and yellow colored lights, so I thought I would give them a try. It took a couple of hours, but I mounted them on my older V929, which had two dim headlights I had put on it before. The lights, wires, resistors, shrink tube, tape, and on/off switch added 3.1 grams over what it weighed before. I got to fly it outside tonight, and the lights were very brite and made orientation easy to see. Anyway, I will try to attach a few pictures for anyone interested.

I ordered the Gws props from glbuy on nov 11th with no tracking. Recieved them today in the mail, was actually very surprised, that's just 12 days All I have done so far is unpack them and make sure they didn't look damaged. Came in a bubble cushioned envelope. The greater pitch is obvious and they look and feel lighter than stock blades. I think I am going to go balance them, weigh them, and install them so I can be ready to try them out

I balanced the GWS props and installed them last night. All of the props were way out of balance to the same side, may have added up to .1 gram to balance them. The GWS props weigh 1.7g compared to 1.9g stock props. Flew it once last nite and once this morning, 2 or 3 mph wind both times. I did not do much fast forward or banked turning. The GWS props seemed more responsive to all stick movements and I could not get the V929 to do a WOD even when I tried Pictures:

Those look nice. I want the gray and orange like yours. WLtoys should use those as standard props. They look better. More visible. Better performance.

Archilles Elbow, what you said about the GWS props is part of why I ordered them Now I just need the wind to calm down so I can get it outside to really test them out, but initial trials are very favorable.
