Building new 6 inch freestyle drone for 5s batteries. Decided to use low kv motors (1900kv) to save batteries life on higher voltage. Also wanted to try 6 inch props (expecting more punch from them). All components choosed are able to run up to 6s battery. So it will be very intresting build and a new flight experience for me.

On 5s battery this drone is fast, flying great!

Installed Crossfire. Now it's ready for mid or maybe long range flights, looks pretty nice!

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..
