Hey taters, like the build. Where is your Spektrum mounted, I don't see it in the pictures. Did you take it out of the case? PooperMcWank don't eat quads the props get stuck in your teeth.

Hey Extraprops,
Yes i completely decased the sat, and i know there is no picture, but it is sandwiched between the vtx and top plate.

Well done. I thought maybe stuck behind the camera. Good to know that there was just enough space up there. How was the frame held up?

Frame is awesome even for its size it is very robust.

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..
