Tried to do as clean of a build as I could hoping the frame is stable enough to keep the worst of the jello out. I know where the hype is these days (planning that next) but I really liked the FlexRC Komori frame that I got stuck hopelessly high up in the tree above the house. So this one is dedicated to the lost Komori!

The weight without a battery is 127g.

Looks nice !! I am building mine (actually finished it) but have huge noise in the FPV-feed, lines going zig zag when throttling up. Have tried all in the book to change that to no avail...........bummer. I have come to the preliminary diagnosos this must be from ESC/motor wires close to/under the Split. Not going to change that now........will fly it a while to see how it flies.........

Also, this frame may be more stable than El Camino

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..
