This is rebuild of my previous build "Barracuda" (https://rotorbuilds.com/build/3612). Drone was made for freestyle a year ago and it's time to upgrade it to the next level. So i decided to install new fc - HelioRC Spring. Old pdb doesn't match new fc, ordered Matek FCHUB-6S. RE200 Beast-X V2 frame is very strong and i like it looks. Other parts are pretty good, no need to upgrade it.

Fc flashed with Butterflight 3.5.2 MSD 1.0.0 IMUF 1.0.7 ODIN. CPU load is about 11% with DShot600 and 16/16 gyro/pid loops.

I love it. Do you get props in the camera? Id like to do something like this but with a split.

Split has much wider lens, so props will get in a video.

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..
