This build is very advanced and was a HUGE challenge to get everything to fit in that tiny little deck, if you aren't an experienced builder buy the regular non slammed version of this frame :)

Update: I had to re route all of the wires to be under the flight controller to accommodate my battery strap

I have some 2408.5's on an LR, and I am guessing on a 5" they make for just about the most powerful thing you'll ever fly. They lift a Ti LR + Session and all the fixins like nothing. I was wondering where you went for your KV choice (because you are using 4S). I looked at all your pics, but it's always just outta view (Hey! I know it ends in "22"... lol). I, of course, went the lowest (1622), what did you select for this one? I am guessing not 1622. Thanks for sharing!

I'm flying the 2722 2207's on an ARX-R. I like them quite a bit. I'd love to sample PD's entire line... even the 1106's and 1103's.

I have the 1103's for my toothpick :D

Looks awesome. I admire you for going with the 4-in-1 ESC. I'm building one now and didn't even consider it. This thing is low. I designed a little spacer to take up the gap in the back of the GoPro mount on the slammed frame. Looks much better than having to crush the back of the mount down. Happy flying!

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..
