I would like to start off by saying this is a bit different. I don't know if this is the best way to do this, but I am looking for some help before I actually put my build together. Suggestions, advice, and critique are all appreciated. So this is my first ever step into FPV. I have been doing research and "window shopping" for around 6-8 months now. I have come down to 2 thematic builds. The main difference only being aesthetics. And while I am looking to maximize efficiency , it doesn't have to be mind blowing as it is only my first build. Thank You.
Note: I would also appreciate it if there are any suggestions based on ease of installation and modification., as I am a beginner.

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..
