Ps. Since you alerted me to latency, I'll just use the 808 for recording flight footage as originally planned And it's hard to time a flight when you're always crashing.
Oh Casey. It is not going to be a walk in the parků.LOL.

There's might be more walking than flying going on at the park. I'm sure I'll be going to pick up the quad many times before I can keep it in the air.

The Tarot 130 is a little less wild, but can be made faster with re-tuning and different props. Haven't gone that route yet, so hard to tell how it would then compare to the other 4.

The Rodeo is very polished too, and despite just running 2S, very fast and punchy. The Devo 7 is a good transmitter, good range and stick control. It's just a bit bulky and heavy if you use NiMh cells instead of LiFe or LiPo as transmitter battery. A range-modded 7E would be more convenient.
Good stuff Solo.
Grayson hobbies has the Blade 185 RTF for $250, vs ~$230 for the Rodeo.
I'm reading on Rodeo thread now about how some are changing out the stock camera. Do you plan on doing this?
If I'm dropping $200+ on a quad I'd really like to not mess around with it much.

Some guys change things for the sake of changing things. If some people are happy with the camera, chances are you will be too

I broke the front of the camera off and chipped the lens in my window crash, but amazingly, I pushed the lens barrel back in place and tested it to find that it works fine. WooHoo! For the next vid I'll hook up the camera, and set up my hat cam to record the monitor. I will still fly los, but I want to see what it looks like through the camera, flying fast without having to fpv yet

it is normal that the propellers do not fixed well on gear because the screw is too long?

The stock camera is not perfect. but can be used for FPV, judging by what my DVR recorded. It can handle fast motion, but lacks a bit focus and detail. A better camera will give a nicer picture. The 185 camera is a little better, based upon comparing DVR recordings, and it can easily be focused, if needed. But it's a little uncertain if there will be parts support for the Blade 185, while the 150 has good support for sure.

Yeah you're right, some people are happy with the 807's yaw response so....

The guy that changed the 150's camera says it's got a wider FOV and better focus. I like those things.
It is unclear on gearbest how to make sure I'd get the US version's 200mW VTX vs the Euro 25mW. Hopefully any order going to the US has the more powerful VTX, but according to those on the thread there is no label, advice is to just see if the VTX gets "hot" or "very hot" to determine the power :/
I'd prefer something a bit more definitive.

Taking the X5C and 807 FPVers over to my father in law's tomorrow. He's a good ol boy, native east Texan, ex Coast Guard heli pilot and should get a kick out of looking through the headset while I fly.

Hey Kurt . getfpv.com sell a micro 200 mW VTX with antenna that weigh only 6 grams. Page 2 in FPV camera section. I am getting one to replace the 25 mW on my I200. They are in Florida.

The base or the prop should be flush against the face of the drive gear. The screws are long, but it should tighten up. I ruined 1 shaft crossthreading the screw, so take care...

I think all the electronics in my Devo have settled by now, so it's time to put its first set of batteries in and load Deviation so I can fly me tiny whoop

I just think if that does not work. Just buy a used DX6 or better that can bind
with the Inductrix. Why is it so dam complicated ?. Buy American,,,,,LOL..
I do a lot. Your country economy rely on me and millions that shop USA.
Check getfpv.com you will get pretty excited but I know that the Hobby grade is sometimes exaggerated in $$. But they have nice stuff.

I have been ordering a lot of parts to rearrange my carbon fiber 210 frame. Full Naze acro with barometer and compass, 2206 motors, protectors, and 20amp ESC/bec /pdb combo, DAL 5045 triblade props, Flysky RX , 1300mah 4S battery, 800tvl micro camera, 600mw VTX, and filter, GT450 helicopter landing skid for belly mount battery and 808 V3, and GPS. I decided to quit pussyfootin' around and build a quad that I would surely lose flying l.o.s. if I punched the throttle. I think I'll break it on a FPV tree...
