Operational: August 2018 – July 2019 (retired)
Welcome to the 5″ drones that can travel at speeds of 100km/h. It runs with normal 4 cell lipo batteries and has enough space & power to carry a GoPro Hero. It also allows one to get familiar with flying and see how a stock drone behaves. Over the subsequent months of learning to fly, I upgraded the camera (the TBS Zero camera sucks) and added a GPS. My first 5″ quad.
I retired the Vendetta from active use when I started to build my own drones. It would still work, but I’ve moved to digital VTXs, and the Vendetta enclosure and FC doesn’t really have the capability to be upgraded.
