simply transplanted electonics back into an old emax nighthawk x5 frame bc it was lighter and drilled extra holes to make a hx configuration with arms and there. it reliable and has solid enough performance, but that doesnt matter all that much, its 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. 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.
