Does anyone have a link to an STL file so I can 3D print my own GoPro mount that will fit on this frame?

Any help would be much appreciated!!

You can just zip tie any normal tpu mount to it. like: or

The only screw mounted mounts that I have seen for the hawk 5 were on kabab fpv's hawk review

If you have exact screw hole measurements for the hawk 5 maybe something on this page will do also:

Yep agreed. I'd go ahead and order one but I'm saving to get some new goggles at the moment and a stack to complete my floss build. Just can't decide what stack to put in it.

Just received one today. The rx antenna's are already heat-shrunk onto the rear frame standoffs. The rx has not been flashed with the rssi for OSD firmware (on channel 8 or 16) So will have to do that myself. Also the vtx antenna is not secured but it is glued to the ipex connector.

I would have preferred the heatshrink and zip ties that were used to mount the rx antenna were just left in the box so I could mount them myself. I do have loads of them though, I just would have preferred to not have to cut them off. You can orient them so they look like they are out of the propline but they are really flexible and easy to bend back in for a prop strike. I did a quick test flight with some punch-outs and slow rolls just to see if one would get caught up. surprisingly it didn't. It just started raining again so when I get a chance im going to try some much more aggressive manoeuvres.

First Flight test finally uploaded:

Just upgraded the firmware for RSSI on the OSD and re routed the xtv antenna through the top plate

Took forever to upload this and I intentionally left the bitrate @ 10mbps to keep the size down. Not really worth it:

Hawk5 - Second Flight - w/ RSSI on OSD (5 min 19 sec)

I created it again @ 16.5mbps but still looks like crap to me once uploaded to youtube:

Hawk5 - Second Flight - w/ RSSI on OSD - higher bitrate (5 min 18 sec)

I really love how this handles. I haven't even felt the need to tune it. I don't even think I could improve on the stock tune anyway.
I think this is the only BNF I have purchased that came with accurate voltage and current calibration out of the box. It is consistently within 5% and that's balance charging where there is also some discharging to balance the packs so being a little higher than the OSD report when I balance charge is expected

My last flight reported 1016mAh used on the OSD and after balance charging it took 1048mAh

So far the out of the box mounting of the rx antennas has not been an issue and have had zero antenna prop strikes, which is not what I expected at all. Looping the stock vtx antenna and bringing it out the top without the need to zip tie it as its more than rigid enough this way, works extremely well, im getting way better reception than I did with the Kopis 1 and the kopis is using an Omni. I don't feel the need to mount the ipex to sma connector that's provided. The 2 pagoda LHCP's are smaller than I expected but have not used them at all.

I got a chance to take the Kopis 1 and the GT200N out around 7pm today

Betaflight Versions
Emax Hawk 5: 3.2.2 (stock)
Holybro Kopis 1: 3.2.1
Diatone GT200N: 3.1.6 (stock)

Hawk 5 - Kopis 1 - Crusader GT200N Punch-out Comparison Attempt (1 min 18 sec)

I haven't flown the GT200N in a while and I forgot to turn off the artificial horizon before I took it out. It is still on the stock tune with the stock betaflight 3.1.6 it came with. Forgot how loud it was.

I bound it to my Taranis X9. The roll and pitch axis only show 1100 to 1900. While the throttle and yaw show the normal 1000 to 2000. I've never used a xm plus before. Is that normal? Do I need to set the rx range?
