12/19 - I can't decide if I want to go Ascent or LiL Deuce

12/26 - Although the Ascent would be more protected and look better, the double weight is just too much of a factor. Using the LiL Deuce frame as the platform is just more beneficial.

01/01/19 - Deuce frame arrived and I'm questioning if the ducts should be mounted above or below the frame arms. The Deuce camera mount should fit between them in either position.

01/02/19 - Upon advice from FPVC, I will put the ducts below the frame so I can keep the motors solidly attached to the carbon.

01/08/19 - Putting the ducts and motors on was a little bit of a PITA and I found out the Rakon hoops at Heli-Nation are on CLOSEOUT sale. They look lighter and thinner. I also gave away all my 1.9 inch props by mistake. I guess I need new ones now? LOL!

01/20/19 Motor wires all extended, I got some 3D prints for a 16x16 mid mount camera. It is supposed to house an XM plus under it but my RX2A is too fat. It now rides on the rear of the mount like a GhostBuster Proton Pack. Video confirmed. I have to set it up in Betaflight and then maiden. It feels light and I have high hopes for this one.

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..
