My very first fpv quadcopter build.

I enjoyed a lot building this and looking forward to the next build. I'm still not sure if I want to build a 3" which of I have the frame already or do I want to build another 5" freestyle kwad with top mounted battery.

All the parts are available on Banggood.

You can find me on Instagram.

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..
