Best way to describe this build is a HGLRC Batman 220 RTF but with low kV motors more suited for 6s than the 2306 2450kV included as stock. Here I've used the Hobbycool 2207 1700kV (A Brother Hobby R3) which is very good value - about $15 each.

My full write up on component choice is here:
and for the build itself is here:

I've maidened on 4s already and have one pack only on 6s. Needs a good tune and I'd like to get ESC telemetry working before I start thrashing it around a bit more. Frame is suprisingly good quality, electronics seem fine and the motors are typical Brother Hobby. My first time using a micro eagle and I'm in love - other than looking good in daylight I did initial FPV tests at night and can't believe how much light it lets in!! Not happy with VTX antenna popping out the top of the frame because it will break - looking for 3d printed solution that hangs off the rear standoffs. Oh yeah, motor wires are long should I wish to transfer to a 7" frame.

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..
