My take on a budget 5" build. I'm super happy about it!! So pretty and flies really well.

The first version of this build was based on the danish Lil Mofo Prototype though: http://fpvgear.dk/drone/rammer/lil-mofo/
Wanted to try the Awesome frame instead, and I'm super happy with the more freestyle-oriented layout being more H-shaped.

On the Awesome frame. There's something weird in the production. One of the 4 holes for mounting the arms is too big which makes it really hard to mount the arm in a robust way. I'd inqure Banggood about this before buying. Photos of the frame: https://photos.app.goo.gl/DVXFspFJTdECeQmc8

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..
