Autumn is coming, so it's time to build waterproof freestyle drone. Used silicone coating to cover all electronics and make it waterproof. Had to disassemble camera to coat its board. F2 Mito frame is cheap, but very good quality and looks great. It has not alot of space for components, so i chose TBS Unify Pro v3 vtx to fit in this frame with other electronics.

Upgrade. Installed new hardware - Kiss v2 flight controller, RunCam Eagle 2 Pro camera, Lumenier AXII Stubby 5.8GHz Antenna and TBS CRSF Nano receiver. Flashed Furious FPV PIGGY OSD (MinimOSD) with KISS OSD V2.5.1 (awolf78 KISS_OSD) firmware for better compatibility.

Nice and clean job, love it!
Got the exact same frame while having similar issues regarding the lack of space.

Would love to know how do you mount the battery (top / bottom) and how do you avoid the leash from touching the electronics.

Thanks!

I mount batteries on bottom, there is enough space between bottom plate and esc for battery strap....

Hey, very nice build ;)
What is the flight time and on which battery?
How much space is there for fc, etc. from top plate to bottom plate/arm...?

Tnx! I didn't test this drone in a field so far - it's too hot outside...
There are not much space in this frame - from top to bottom is 2 cm height for electronics

I usually use Tattu R-Line 1550mAh 4s 95c Lipos. Flight time is about 3-4 minutes aggressive freestyle flying.

Hey bud, love your build!

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..
