It does have a buzzer that's assigned to an aux switch.

Could someone measure the inside of the frame and tell me the usable dimensions for electronics? Im trying to see if my older electronics will fit. Thanks in advance! Still considering this one...

A picture of a GoPro mounted as well please.
I'm not sure how it is supposed to be strapped.

The supplied GoPro chair is for the Hero 3/4. You'll have to use a different mount for the Session.

Has anybody else's antenna come off ? Its a different fitting than I have seen. Its pressed into place at the *45 so it comes right out. Or it came right out whether it was supposed to or not. I just pushed it backed in and seems to be ok

Im going to change that setup and use a short cable from the TX to a standoff mounted to the back of the frame. Something like this. I'll prob have to punch a hole in the side for the cable

Also it looks like they used Betaflight 2.7.1 for the FC firmware. Is that correct ?

Thank you. I'll just use the mount that comes with Gopro... seems to be enough room.

That's a bummer. Any crashes that could have damaged the motor? I have over 80 pack on mine and no issues other than I have a small crack on the top plate from a nasty crash and I broke the plastic coffin on my 3rd flight (since replaced with a red one).

No major crashes hit a gate now and then. I been flying 3s and switched to a 4s. Was cruising along and it started wigging out flipping every which way. After that motor won't spin up just jitters. They are DYS brand and it appears there have been issues with them in the past

Been troubleshooting for a while now. Need a new esc. Wonder if I can add a little bee esc and be ok ?

Reach out to Horizon Hobby. They should warranty both the motor and ESC for you.

What ratio (16:9 or 4:3) is more native view with the stock camera?

It's a 4:3. It's a Spektrum branded HS1177.
