This thing flies great and is proof that things do not need to cost an arm an arm and a leg and sometimes componetnts will work fine and fly nicely even though they might not on paper.. This is a nice chamfered frame with good components and this budget build is a great reminder to just go fly and have fun!

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.
