Flying the Tomoquads Trident and having so much fun with it, I couldn't resist the temptation of building a 2" plus configuration.
The Diatone frame is very rigid and is of decent quality. It even comes vacuum packed.
I put on GPS, because it wanted it.
Blast of fun this one.

The GPS doesn't do altitude hold. Just a very basic return to home. But you can meausure speed with it.

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..
