As with my other quads I like to keep things simple so there's really nothing spectacular about this build.

I wanted to anodized the cage orange or red but those colors can't be done so I went with a gold/bronze color and I'm very pleased with the results.

I'm running the motors/props in reverse rotation but I don't like the crud being flung onto the flight controller so I drew up some protectors that snap onto the flight controller vibration dampeners.

The electronics consist of the BetaFlight F4 flight controller (ButterFlight), Armattan 30a ESCs (Multi-Shot), BrotherHobby Returner R5 "Red Hulk" 2306-2650kv motors, Runcam Swift 2, Eachine VTX03 w/ SMA connector, AXII antenna, LemonRx DSMX satellite, and Gemfan 5152 Whiskey props.

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..
