hows the motors? i plan to get the same but i feel ilike theyre too overkill for my 3" freestyle quad (also 4s). Flight times on that 650mah? cant wait for a video :D

Motors are sweet! Flight time will depend on style (how aggressive your style is). The way I fly, I usually get around 4.5-5 minutes out of them

You added a mic? What for?

I like live audio of the motors while flying. Its more immersive, more fun, and actually when you're listening to the response of the motors to your stick movements it helps with throttle management (altitude control). I like to use external mic's for this as opposed to internal mic's on camera or VTX just because the external ones seem to work better (that's the only job the compoennt is responsible for). So, I'm always looking for VTXs which have an "audio input solder pad". There's a few of them. The one I'm using for this build has it and is also an 800 mW VTX. It all works good together. Don't know if you're familiar with live audio setup or not, however, if you're interested I've got a video on it entitled "MICRO FPV DRONE LIVE AUDIO SETUP" on my youtube channel. Happy Flying Friend!

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..
