Objective: Build the brightest most noticeable quad possible while maintaining acrobatic ability and moderate speed.

Constraint: Use old Qav 250 frame and other most parts on hand. Everything except the LEDS is come out of my horde of new and used parts.

Plan: 12 LEDs per top/bottom of each arm. 24 LEDs on bottom of base plate. 36 LEDs on top of stack plate. 24 LEDs per side of the stack. Total goal of 204 LEDs?

Top front arms, top rear arms, bottom front arms, bottom rear arms, and the stack will each be separate 'strings' running off the LED PD .

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
