Acro Whoop

Probably the easiest and quickest build I have ever done (although the screws were a pain to put in) but still worth adding to the fleet. The Camera/Vtx came with a RHCP antenna and I only have LHCP antennas. To solve the issue I modified an Immersion RC antenna that comes stock with NexWave Modules. The overall video setup is very clear and has pretty decent penetration with 25mw. I may end up upgrading the motors later but for now this quad is great for ripping around indoors. I highly recommend getting one of these to practice flying in tight locations.

Yes it flies very well, the stock tune needed no adjustments. The telemetry is nice.

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..
