3D printed the frame while waiting for it to be cut by Armattan Productions to plan the layout. This was a complicated build due to the oversized 20x20 boards of the Airbot stack. Mounted them rotated 90 degrees in the end to allow me to fit the VTX and Turtle board in the second stack position.
Have upgraded to the glass Turtle lens which was a decent upgrade.
There is a small SPDT switch which allows me to switch between the Turtle and the Monster. The Monster has a significantly better FPV feed to the Turtle.

2 things: Who is Ann and why does she like your frames? And you have a sticker?! PS: I like your XT60 adapter

thanks in advance

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..
