After the unfortunate death of my first build https://rotorbuilds.com/build/9953 I've decided that I had no luck with micros (4 unfortunate incidents in a row) I decided to build my first mini.

Rig weighs in at 369.9g without batteries, and I get around 12mins of hovering with the 1500mAh 4S battery.

My first build using the Matek F405 STD FC, pretty easy build, but having issues with the barometer. Twitches when I activate altitude hold on BF, will sort that out. Testing out the Quelima SQ12 action cam. Can't go wrong at that price before I go full on GoPro.

Here's to hoping my streak of bad quad luck ends with this Rooster!

Nice build mate! Seems your baro problem is just a problem of tuning. Did you try to tune the barometer PID in Betaflight? I think the variable names are ALT, VelP and VelD. It is the same kind of tuning as for the motors. I personally only use the baro to monitor altitude through the OSD as it is not really useful on a racer but I tried the altitude hold for fun and it was not so bad after tuning. I had twitches as well before changing the PID values. You can check this for more info : https://github.com/betaflight/betaflight/issues/1003

Thanks for the tip. Yeah I just wanted to try the altitude hold for fun, might be useful if i want to take pictures of it in flight haha.

Sorry to hear about the last quad :( This one is looking good tho. Just preordered my Chameleon TI and am excited. 12 minutes hover seems crazy long but I've never really just done a hover test though. Good luck with it!

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..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
