Anybody got a quick picture of a correct zip-tie set-up?

Any which is visible from anywhere in any quad position and doesn't have a risk to get in props at moving. Avoid very tall ties - sticking 5-7 centimeters above frame in air is enough. Don't tie RX antenna to VTX antenna though - you can get both receiving and FPV transmitting issues in this way. Better separate RX and VTX antennas as far as possible.

About position:

1) For RX with one antenna - somewhere at frame top in middle or back pointing in 20-45 degrees backwards. Or other place where opened top of antenna can't get blocked by frame.

2) For diversity RX - at frame sides pointing in 45 degrees aside (try to have 90 degree angle between them if possible). If antenna length is sufficient - on arms at middle, pointing backwards and down.

Explanation picture why zip ties are good. Someone in this picture definitely saved 0.01$ on antenna mounting (approx price of zip tie + heat shrink tube for that)

Are the silver colored bits on the end of the antenna the only bits that actually receive and transmit? The black parts are just extension cords, correct?

Exactly. These are naked signal wires in coaxial cable with removed grounding mesh - they're work as simple monopole 1/4 wave length antennas. For high radio frequencies with short wave length (for RC-ers 2.4 GHz , 5.8 GHz) these are enough. Length of naked part will define frequency range for particular antenna (31.25 mm for 2.1 GHz 1/4 wave length). Black or gray part is the rest of cable with grounding and plastic isolation layer.

Hi, I know it's not this forum, but I always get help from here. I wonder which is the best budget tiny whoop? Is it better to buy already build or build on my own?

I did a pair of budget whoops for me and nephew from JJRC H36 and Furibee F36 by removing canopy and putting CM275T cameras on them. Eachine 010 will match as whoop base as well with Boldclash F-01 and other similar light AIO camera on top. Already whooped versions of these

One more question. Is it possible to connect to those quads with taranis? I don't want to fly with those little crappy controllers.

F36S will connect fine to Taranis. He linked to the Frsky version actually.

It uses the furibee f3 32-bit board.(aff)

Note that the F36S is DIY.

Those with stock boards and little crappy controllers may be controlled through yet-another-protocol support modules in Taranis like this

or change their boards to F3 compatible ones like these

Yea, the original. I've since replaced almost everything on it. Minus the Flight Controller, and the Receiver. (My Pids and Tune) I tossed on lighter screws and standoffs and a thicker top plate as well.

Thats 4S on DAL Cyclones. They rip!

2.09 in the video, during a backflip, you get a glimpse of something, I wonder what that could be?

Just before I knicked the tree. I had a small branch/leave stuck me on. I did the flip to shake it off. I could hear my prop hitting it slightly
