California Quads FB-01 Tekko32 XSRF4O

Since the XSRF4O does not have a BEC, both the FPV camera and the FC are powered from the the VTX's 5V@1A SBEC. This could be improved with powering the FPV camera from Vbat. There may be enough 5V juice left over to add some LEDs.

For an even cleaner build, the Matek VTX is mounted into the rear standoffs. The wiring mess went between the ESC and FC. Both the 4in1 ESC and the FC are softmounted using 2.5mm O-rings on 24mm long M3 bolts which reach to just under the top plate. The XSRF40 has M4 openings for complete vibration isolation from the mounting bolts using silicon M4-to-M3 inserts.

you know you can put the battery sideways, and then run the gopro on top of the tpu pod, right?

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..
