I decided to try anodizing my Armattan Rooster a blurple color and I couldn't be happier with how it turned out.

The build consists of the BetaFlight F4 flight controller, Armattan 30a ESCs (D-Shot 600), Emax LS2206-2700kv motors, Runcam Swift 2, Eachine VTX03 w/ SMA connector, AXII antenna, LemonRx DSMX satellite, and HQ V1S 5x4.3x3 props.

So that looks dope as hell. Can you really run those 2700kv motors on 5s with all that weight?!

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. 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..
