True HD Brushless Whoop

I have this prototype frame made a while ago and I never really found a good use for it. Then comes the HD brushless whoop wave. But what I really don't like is that people have been using is their Beta75X and slap on a HD camera. The 40mm prop on 2S simply can't offer enough power to carry such a heavy rig. So I decided to make my own with 1.9 inch prop. This frame was made to accommodate up to 2.5 inch but now with the 1.9 inch guard, it leaves some room to put the camera in between the ducts. PERFECT!

I use parts that I have lying a round, but my intended setup would use a HGLRC Zeus with a small VTX and a Caddx Turtle or Split Mini single board. That way you can really keep the stack low, and possibly under the duct.

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..
