Lizard95 Speed & Agility Mod

The Lizard95 is a lightweight – and that’s what makes it so fast and agile. The addition of a Runcam and a VTX03 provides a much better picture, but also makes the Lizard noticeably slower. Every gram really counts with the Lizard. In order to get the greatest possible manoeuvrability out of the small, the following is recommended:

Use the original cam
Well, the original FPV cam of the Lizard is only suitable for sunshine – but then it is quite usable! So if you usually fly in good weather, you should use it and refrain from adding a Runcam, which, especially together with the VTX03, packs a few grams more on the Lizard.

Get rid of the cloverleaf antenna!
The cloverleaf antenna of the Lizard is well-intentioned, but in terms of quality it is scrap metal. After just a few flights, the fragile middle bridge between the two “clovers” breaks, which repeatedly causes annoying picture dropouts in flight. Our tip: do not even repair, but immediately replace it with this flexible whip antenna. The result is an even better and more stable image – which does not exactly speak for the quality of the Eachine Cloverleaf antenna.

Get rid of the antenna protectors!
If you have exchanged the bad cloverleaf antenna of the Lizard for a whip antenna, you don’t need the two carbon side panels anymore, because they only protect the cloverleaf antenna. These can be easily unscrewed, saving even more weight.

Get rid of the LED Strip!
The LED Strip weighs another 1-2 grams. However, thanks to the plug, this can be easily removed, which again saves weight without any effort at all.

Which props?
The original 5-blade props, with which the Lizard95 comes, bring the best thrust in our experience. It should therefore be used. However, these are quite fragile and bend easily, which is noticeable in flight by vibrations. An alternative are the Gemfan 2035 4-blade propellers, which deliver slightly less thrust than the 5-blade, but are significantly more stable and less vibrating.

All these tips together, depending on your flying style of course, bring almost an additional minute more flight time or make the Lizard as fast and agile as possible.

⭐️Tipp:
The receiver antenna of the Lizard has a poor quality. If you experience problems with the reception or the range (“TXLOSS”), replace it with these 2.4GHz antennas of better quality. Like the original antenna, these can be simply clipped on but ensure perfect reception (not only for FrSky but also DSM etc.). Unfortunately they are a bit long, but on the following pictures you can see how they can be accommodated in the Lizard. And don’t forget: secure the plug of the antenna on the receiver with a blob of hot glue so that it cannot come loose over time.

The following pictures show the modded Lizard95, where the Cloverleaf was replaced by a whip antenna and the carbon side panels were saved. To protect the whip antenna a little, you can attach two cable ties on the left and right side of the frame and bring them together above the antenna, creating a kind of ring. The receiver’s antenna, which is quite long after all, can also be attached here:
