Yeah I know. I am so not worthy! I am a bit of a noob to this round of FPV and the MK1 is my first complete build. I got too many irons in the fore at one time.

Wait ... so this is your cherry popping build?? Dude that honor is all mine man!! Hopefully the build log was helpful (QR scan on the included manual). Of course you can always hit up the "other" forum or better yet get with me directly if you ever have any questions.


[edit] Just remembered your contest kit did not include the "Pilot Handbook" ... just check back on the product page, scroll to the bottom and there will be links to build log, tuning guide, and downloadable STL files.

It's straight forward by mounting the Caddx Air unit at the rear 2020mm mounting holes of the frame but you will need to secure the antenna, preferably with a TPU mount secured to the standoffs.

I just reused the blue antenna TPU mount from another quad and attached it on top of the quad and half tied down with a zip tie ..... ghetto style.

Hey ya’ Rob! Brace yourself my friend.... my MK1 took to the air today!

I had to revise my build a bit, as getting a full Air Unit in there was gonna be a little tough for this noob FPV quad builder. So, I fell back to a Caddx Vista. Unfortunately, the only version I could find was the one with the Nebula Nano. Wow.... in my opinion, it’s even worse than I expected (after watching a good number of reviewers videos). But I figure I’ll eventually find and snag a Nebula Pro or other (read as better) camera to retrofit in.

With a 75C 4S Tattu 850mSh pack, mine came in at exactly 250g RTF! I guess technically I need to lose a gram to keep it off the Feds radar.

I took it down to the neighborhood park and put my first three flights on it. Winds were 10-13 MPH and quite gusty but she flew great. I like the balance of power and duration that it looks like my setup will be providing me. An easy six or seven minutes if I just cruise around, with a few mild aerobatics and punch outs thrown in. I’m no amazing freestyler or anything but I love the way the MK1 flies. I have a bunch of studio and outdoors static photos to process and post, which I will mostly do over at that other (FPV) based forum. I’ll see what I can do for a short video too, though the combination of my noob flying skills and a Nebula Nano camera does not set the stage for anything too exciting to watch. LOL
