    HDMI Out & Building an FPV IRL Streaming Drone

    I'm new to fpv and I'm currently planning on building out a project where I need HDMI video out.

    Gremlin Review

    I was considering buying a gremlin when I saw a review on the power pack g v2 saying that it didn't work properly on the gremlin frames. I was wondering if this is still an issue? If this is still an issue is it possible to fix it?
