Räsvelg 3 is available now for $45 at Pitch Roll Yaw and FPVHQ!

This is the Räsvelg 3 140mm 3" quad prototype build. Or builds, I should say, because I built the same quad twice to have a backup racer. After extensive, uh, testing, we've found the product is ready to go and have opened pre-orders.

This quad has amazing handling characteristics and is very quiet due to the lack of drag from it thin airframe design. With a 3mm bottom plate, it ends up more durable than other 3" builds while having better aerodynamics, and though it's subjective, WAY better looks ;)

Looks great! It's like a baby Garuda.

It's definitely Garuda race canopy inspired, but it's already got a big brother, the Räsvelg 5! The big brother is a 190mm 5" quad with the same canopy, but removable 5mm arms. It's a super light weight beast designed for all out speed, whereas the Räsvelg 3 is an aerodynamic mini-me designed for agility (and, with the right motors, all out speed as well).

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..
