Beaver FPV gave me a Detroit Multirotors WP17 Prototype to build and give feedback on.

Overall I think this frame is amazing in performance but a bit tricky to build unless you go with a full AIO FC that incorporates a PDB and everything in one package. Separate VTX and receiver are totally fine but you don't want to deal with a big stack. Space is at a premium on this frame.

The flight performance however is quite impressive. It felt well planted and took corners very well with the stock Betaflight 3.0.1 PID's and my own rates.

I will be updating this periodically as I get more of a chance to test the frame!

For now I will leave you with this awesome maiden video! -

What is dimension between front to back motors and left to right? Would like a comparison to my DMR stretch frame.

Front motors are roughly 142mm apart and front-back motors are about 155mm aparts. I don't have a precise instrument on me right now sorry =S

What is that cylindrical thing in the back?

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..
