This is the ultimate mid range micro flyer. With AirBlade Superman 1404 3850kV on 850mah 4S running biblade props, you're looking at 8 minutes cruising. The frame also allows for dual cam setup if you want to throw on the HD cam like Split Mini or Caddx Turtle, or even a GoPro Session. Check out the footage here

All of that and staying under 250g make it a great quad to take with you on hikes to capture that stunning HD footage.
I've played around with Gemfan 3025 and HQProp T3x3 and I think the HQProp are better. I get virtually no jello, and the props are way more durable.

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..
