Hey there Mr. Fellstar... we met over on the Helio Slack. :) Nice build here. I'm between these and the Neutron right now. But I'm like going to run 20x20 electronics with 6S. I like the weight and design of these. Not sure that it will be an easy build or how durable compared to the Neutron, but definitely interesting. I'm aiming for a superlight 6S build with 2205/1722kv... and a 1000mah 6s.

First one is a pain, but once you figure out how you want to build them, and take it a part a few times, it's a really nice package!

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..
