3/10/18 - This is gonna be so cool! I built it out enough to test fly with the f4 pro corners. I don't like this FC. Getting a Helio Spring.

3/12/18 - Crashed hard. Killed a motor. Tossed GPS. Waiting on replacement motors. Flew with FauxPro. It's okay. Getting a Runcam Split.

3/20/18 - Split, Helio and Mach2 are going in tonight. Don't like CMOS, getting another Foxeer Arrow. This time a Mini to get my view outside the carbon cage. This build is getting pricey but I hope to sell the parts I wound up not liking.

3/21 - Starting to fly it regularly. Mach 2 is great. Smartaudio is handy. I even listen to the fpv feed through an earbud sometimes. I'm currently designing some accessories.

3/27/18 - Crash Testing the Runcam Split Mini Housing. Of course I didn't install the SD card protector plate.

Other than refining my printed accessories and adding crossfire, I'd say this build is essentially complete!

This thing is the cadillac of 5" quads.

Super clean raggio! Thank you for sharing all your build pics!

Thanks! You guys did a hell of a job with this thing! I added skids to the booties just to keep that sexy ass bottom plate sexy. Still messing with it a lot. Going to get Lungo arms for it when they are out. Who am I kidding I'll probably just build a Lungo.

I really like it, I just used an extra lng lens for fpv cam to get my PoV outside the carbon cage.

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..
