On photo №5 second esc from blow has a join between caps (or resistors, i don't know honestly). Just finished my build and notice, I'm having same thing on 1 of 4 esc's. Did u had any issues with this ?

Just figured out it's fine. Other esc's has that contact too.
Anyway, nice quad and video!

What can you say about this motor model?

Can you do one of these with the arms in the top position and the electronics under? Would be really cool to see and help me plan mine.

Personaly, i like it better in "normal". It's damn well balance and kind of "buttery", definitely for smooth freestyle.
For freestyle you want to have an even mass distribution on all axes and as close as possible to the center of the X.
Left/right and front/rear balance is quite easy but for top/bottom it's trickier since the middle referal is not the X of your frame, rather your "prop line".
If you build it "reverse", you'll have your prop line at the middle of your battery pack and so, more weight under than above=not good.
This is theory by the way, if you look at Ummagawd's Remix it has the same issue that i just described but seems to work well eitherway.

Midmount is definitley smoother and more flowy in my experience. If you like doing a lot of looping and diving it definitley has an easier time, the top mount even at 10 or 15mm stabilizes itself a little easier so if you like to cruise along the ground a lot it has an easier time doing that. Very locked in. I prefer the CG in a top mount build, and then the Vert Freestyle for a midmount.

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..
