This will forsure be my goto frame to try top mount batteries, when i have the money! lol Reminds me of the HyperLow frame.

Nice build! It looks a lot like the GEP-TX5 I just finished. How do you like those props? I'm running Dal 5040 tris on mine because I wanted to tread lightly into the F60s.

@dirtdiver What batteries are you running with that setup?

dirtdiver   Jan 05, 2017 

I've got some older Tattu 1300mAh, and some newer Revolectrix 1500mAh LiHV's. Either seem to work fine, without puffage. The packs do get a bit warmer than my old prop/motor setup though.

Whiffles   Jan 05, 2017 

I might have to give them a try then. I'm running Tattu Race Series 1300, so they should be fine.

Any option for camera plates that would support mounting a Session?

IMHO, this would be the best for this frame. Strap through the carbon is always my preferred solution.

Just designed up a 3D printed mount that integrates into the horizontal standoffs between the cam plates. Looks super clean. I've also been toying with the idea of 3d printed face cover for the session that allows a strap to be run the same direction as the hero 4.

Both setups sound awesome to me, though my brain just wondered if strapping to standoffs would be as sturdy?Anyway, the same direction idea would be neat too, just need to make sure the 3d cover leaves a hole for the record button.

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..
