I don't race but really liked the looks of the Catalyst MachineWorks Raging Droner 5R frame so I decided to build one for just general flying/freestyle. It's a very nicely designed and goes together perfectly. I drew up and printed a few custom height green TPU spacers to get everything into the stack the way I wanted. It comes in at 304.3 grams without a battery.

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..
