This is my first leap in to true long range FPV. I decided on the gorgeous Project 399 Super G Plus as the platform. Spent lots of time designing/printing 3d parts to hold the camera, r9M antenna, GPS module, and VTX/Antenna. I plan to upload those parts to Thingiverse (link to be added soon). Still working on the PID tune--will post those final numbers when I get them done. Enjoy!

(special thanks to Minichado for sending me his PIDs as a starting point)

hey dood, nice build. that GPS is real nice eh, i've got two of those. really like them. wondering what your thoughts are on those props? i ordered two sets and havent flown them yet but from the bench spooling them up they seem to have a lot of vibes. are you gettings the same thing? the more to tighten them down the more vibrations. im guessing because the blades can't straighten out perectly. so that means they almost have to have no tention on them to the point they almost spin on the shaft if you for it lightly. anyways. thanks for your time. 🤘

Looks great! I've gotten close to 20 minutes of flight time on a 5200 4s fwiw.

Beautiful and very clean build! Two Questions?

What's the flight time with 1800mah battery pack?
What product did you use to enclose the wires from the motors?

Thanks for the kind words. I havent yet had a chance to really test flight times. I am still getting PIDs dialed in. I'll try to leave an update later.

The wires are covered by standard braided cable sleeving - can be purchased on Amazon.

The antenna is designed for the Frsky R9MM mini receiver. You slide the two antenna leads into a small hole in the middle of the mount, and then attach the plastic tubing on either side. Works amazingly well--essentially creates an Immortal T type antenna that is flexibly mounted on a standoff (spaced away from carbon).

Want to learn how to build an FPV rig? This guide will walk you through your first FPV freestyle build. These parts were hand-picked to balance cost and maximize performance. The TBS Source One is a popular frame for it's low cost, high quality carbon fiber. It's easy to work with and provides more than enough space for your electronics. We've got a 32bit 4-in-1 ESC to bring you the smoothest flights..

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..
