This build just about emptied my wallet - I even had to sell my transmitter to fund it! (currently looking for a cheaper replacement to get back in the air) But I love to build, probably more than flying and I'm more than happy with how this one turned out.

I wasn't happy with the 3D printables I could find online so I made my own - on thingiverse now: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3712955

The biggest challenge was mounting the Tarsier which uses M2 mounting. I used long M2 bolts with some M2 brass grommets to make them sit nicely in the M3 holes.

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..
