How's this build coming together? Get all the parts yet?

Yep just got the FPV working last night. I think I need to add an LC filter for the camera then it should be good to go! It's not the fastest thing out there but it's a great starter quad.

I haven't seen any builds with the Dragonfly yet. I wonder how much faster it is over a regular Naze32 and I wonder if it really makes a difference. Too bad those Quanum V2's went up in price..

Idk if it's faster, but it's a good price and a solid board :) Very minimal. Ya man I have two of the Quanum V1's. One of them is new in box. You interested in buying?

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..
