So I decided I needed to get into the 3" realm for something i can fly close to home.

For the frame I went with a Armattan Japalura as its a pretty stout frame for a 3"

For the motors I wanted something to match both the color's and performance. Not much in the 1407 world to choose from so i went with the tried and true HGLRC Flames.

I wanted to keep it small and simple so i went with a 20x20 Mamba F405 Mini MK2. All the features i need in a small compact space.

VTX went with the new TBS Unify Pro Nano 5G8. Small light and powerful.

Camera I will be using my trusty Caddx Ratel as i am used to the quality and look of it.

This time around i practice my soldering and have improved quite a bit from my last build however this 20x20 was a challenge to solder to.

Let me know what you think.

Long Range build coming next.

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..
