After frying multiple Crazybee F3 and F4 brushless whoop boards I decided to try and build something more durable. I had all the parts from previous "Toothpick" build attempts. I ordered the Iflight Succex 16x16 stack and made a remix of a canopy I found on Thingyverse to fit over it. I wanted something to protect everything inside in case of crashes. It's printed in 98a TPU. After removing a few unnecessary bolts and zip ties, the build is about 6 grams heavier than with a Crazybee board, but flies pretty much the same.

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..
