HGLRC F4 V5 PRO with Atmel 32bit DShot1200 ESCs (V-Good clones?).

The two bottom plates are swapped to give a larger area for battery support. Putting the larger plate on the bottom provides for a perfect spot to wedge the FrSky R-XSR between the plates in the front.

why the exposed cam? was it hitting your boards in the normal position?

exposed cam? normal position?

If you mean the blue FPV camera? I set it to match the GoPro angle, somewhere between 40 and 45 degrees. That's just how it looks mounted in the Frog frame. There was no interference with the AIO FC/PDB/VTX -- plenty of room even if I had more layers on the stack.

I was referring to the use of the top hole in both the cam, and the frame (as opposed to the middle ones that would have your cam protected by the frame).

You're right, I could've done that. I replaced the lens with a Monster 1.8 which might catch the corners of the frame when mounted the way you suggest. Mounted the way it is there's no parts of the drone other than the tips of the props in view.

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..
