After building the first whoov from foamboard and 3D printed parts, I figured a purpose built frame would be much more efficient and durable. This is the product of leftovers from my last whoop refresh along with some purchased parts from AMain and an antenna scrapped from an old race quad. The weight distribution might be a bit off in which case I'll mmove the AIO to the front.

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..
