    This hack is just awesome. The one thing I don't like about the Yi is the fact that the sky is often cyan. It really bugs me. Is there a way to fix this using this hack?

    First Panel Done!

    Ok, my first panel is done.

    I went with white because with the new regulations in the US I have to keep a low profile.

    If you have far distance around -4 diopters, look at the cinemizers. Even the Pluses are really nice and have no lag that can affect things like the headplays.

    Does the AMA still support FPV?

    I hear a lot of noise about the AMA challenging the new FAA ruling, but it seems like all they want to do is to allow AMA members to be automatically registered in the database. I don't see anywhere...

    My most recent change was to swap out the ruby for a RVOSD so that I could use my antenna tracker. I also swapped out my down-looking camera for a gopro 2 looking forward. This saved about 400g of...

    Thanks. These are great tips.

    I'm starting to think about the hinging. Did you use peel ply? I was also impressed by the kevlar technique in Phil Barnes' video.
