Mellow Fellow Whoop

I thought I'd transform my Yellow Mellow Fellow into an indoor and outdoor HD filming quad.
Becauce the frame is a stretched-X there is a little bit of props in view, in the conventional construction.
By assembling the motors facing downwards, I now have an unobstructed camera view.
Because of this mounting method and the prop guards, the prop size increased from 2,5" to 2,8".
I am still waiting for the Cadxx turtle to arrive, then this baby will be ready to rip and roll.
Footage will follow soon.

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..
