This is my own frame/canopy design, cf was cut by Armattan Productions, tpu is sainsmart.

The frame is a slightly stretched X 230mm, arms are 6x10mm, base plate is 6mm.

I don't like the random consequences of arm breaks, so on this design the arm bolts are the weak point, one of the two 12.9 tensile bolts generally breaks and the arm is designed to swing round harmlessly without pulling on the motor wires or esc pads.

Could save 10g by using 5mm cf and at least 10g on the tpu, but I am more interested in durability than weight these days.

Maiden with betaflight 402, I am glad I upgraded, it flys real nice.

Wow, what's that camera angle?

65°, a bit much maybe.

A fixed angle has been good for durability (can't remember the last time I broke a camera).

But if I want a different angle I have to print a new pod.

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. 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..
