After the RTK mk 1 I’ve now moved onto a different design. Its in its early development at this stage, the frame is currently printed out of ABS but I’m not sure it would stand up to a flight so I’m currently laminating up a carbon one.

Yep it’s got a CF brace at the moment as the 3dprint didn’t have any real torsional rigidity.
So I’m going to ditch this 3d printed frame and make the whole thing out of carbon then I can also ditch the brace.

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..
