I finally bit the bullet and pulled the trigger on my first real FPV goggles. I’m used to the wide field of view of my OTG receiver with Android phone mounted on a VR headset so I wanted to have the widest FOV possible. The widest would have been the Dominator HD2 at 50 degrees but I’m actually fine down to the 42 degrees of the Dominator HD3. So when I spotted a well-cared for Dominator HD at 45 degrees, I grabbed it.

Silverware is an open-source flight controller firmware developed by GitHub user silver13 for the H8 mini, BWhoop B03, Eachine E011, and E011C FCs. It was forked and further refined by GitHub user NotFastEnuf. It gives you acro mode, is optimized for the STM32F0 processor and is very well-tuned for brushed motors (especially the NotFastEnuf fork).
An all-in-one brushless FC and ESC board has finally been released. It took a while for me to get my hands on one and even longer to get to building with one. Now, I use it with my favorite brushless whoop frame. Here’s how to build Rakonheli 66mm brushless whoop with Beecore Brushless AIO FC and ESC.
