Souped up Retro Build:
Quanum DIY FPV Goggle V2 (Dual mode with FPV and LOS Cameras)
Recording Camera (On Quadcopter) – RunCam 2 held in place and at an angle by InstaMorph and zip ties at 23 degrees. Also recording at 1080P 60FPS.

Video Transmitter – BOSCAM 600 and Aomway 5.8GHz 4-Leaf Clover Antenna (RP-SMA) (RHCP)
Video Receiver – Aomway RX004 DVR 5.8G 32CH Video Receiver and Aomway 5.8GHz 4-Leaf Clover Antenna for TX/RX (SMA) (RHCP)
RC Loc8ter Lite
DYS 30A ESC’s
BLHeli (Defaults From Banggood Stock – Purchased 11/2015 – Need to update firmware to tweak or find out settings)

DAL “Indestructible” 4045 Tri-Blade Bullnose Props
Mb 1300 graphene 5s
Lumenier 4Power Mini PDB w/ Pololu 5V 1A Step-Down Voltage Regulator. I added an independent 12V 3A regulator from Banggood (the PDB doesn’t have a placeholder for two – just a pad).
Turnigy 9xr Pro
looptime reads as 500 (default 2000)
motor_pwm_rate 600 (default 400))
PID 2 (Luxfloat V2)
ROLL 1.5, 0.036, 8
PITCH 1.7, 0.038, 8
YAW 2.5, 0.100, 0
LEVEL 15.0, 0.050, 75 (No trust in Horizon mode right now)
ROLL rate 0.50
PITCH rate 0.50
YAW RATE 0.50
TPA Breakpoint 1600
RC Deadband 6
Yaw Deadband 6

RSSI Channel 8 – I feed the signal strength from the Radio to this channel for Blackbox to log.
BlackBox enabled at low rate for SPIFLASH (On-board data flash chip and 1/16)
emf_avoidance = OFF, acc_hardware=1, baro_hardware=1, mag_hardware=1,
gyro_lpf=OFF, gyro_sync_denom=4 (it makes looptime 500 when you specify looptime=0)
