Hey everyone, I’ve been using my Racerstar StarF3S for a bit now & after a couple of incidents with a tree(my race gates) I had an issue with the artificial horizon on the OSD turning 90degrees cause the drone to try to fly sideways & causing me to crash more often(yes I was in horizon mode & I know I need to learn to fly acro but I’m still not very confident flying through my gates in acro). I had a big crash & the quad rolled into the creek in my paddock, good thing was that the battery flew off before the quad hit the water & after spending a few days in a bag of rice I powered it up & everything works fine ........sort of. I’m still not confident the horizon problem won’t reoccur so what I’m wondering is what are your recommendations for a new FC/ESC & is it better to get individual units, AIOs or a complete flytower/stack unit?

So I’ve been looking around & im tossing up between a Eachine StackX or a Hobbywing Xrotor FC/ESC stack, anybody know about these?

Also, tell me what you have & how you rate it, I’m keen to get some feedback on what people are using & what they think of it. :)

Yeah I was looking at their stack but it’s only 20mm square & my quad is 30.5mm, are there adapters available for that? Maybe I could get one 3D printed.
