First time building a quad smaller than a 4". I had some electronics just waiting for a frame, so I took advantage of some Black Friday deals to source the parts.

Would you consider it viable to the combination of an Asgard AiO and a Split?

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..
