Sweet build! How do you like the 3D canopy? I think its the first one I've seen for the Mongoose. Does it fit the Axii Stubby antenna? (https://www.getfpv.com/lumenier-stubby-axii-5-8ghz-antenna-rhcp.html) I'm not sure if you're using the stubby or the mmcx/ufl version

The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..

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..
