So far I'm really impressed with this frame. Simple, elegant and durable, although it's a little tight on space inside for a freestyle frame - just enough room to fit my usual set of components - a Helio Spring FC with a 4-in-1 ESC, TBS Unify Pro HV, and Crossfire Nano receiver. It feels really balanced and has a nice CG - similar to a Chameleon or Rooster, but with better separation bewtween the front and rear props, as its arm geometry is not as "squished" as some other freestyle frames - while still managing to keep props out of the HD video. Relatively easy to build, although you do need to manage your stack height if using a 4-in1 ESC. Wide arms and relatively low deck height means it's probably better suited to individual ESCs on the arms with an FC with a builti in PDB, but still workable for a 4-in-1.

You just mount the gopro with the bumper and the strap as pictured? How do you like it? I don't like the session mount they have looking for alternatives

i ended up replacing the mount with one from brain3d. works well.

Great looking build! Looking at this frame for my next build. Are you using the built in soft mounting and if so, did you run into any issues with tuning?

Jackal FPV   Feb 07, 2019 

yes i run soft mounts. very easy to tune.

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..
