OMG Yes! I always said 2019 would be the year that down facing motors would be the new hype. My thought would be to stick the flight stack in the frame upside down and then just flip the props so they would be more at the height of the stack

What I want to know is what is it like to land (the straight pusher)? You just disarm close to the ground?

Basically yes. I line up on something tall levell out and disarm when it touches

I think if you just rotate the camera and change a few BF parameters this will become a normal quad with top-mounted battery and electronics mounted underneath the bottom plate. So it's not that weird. Ok, just for that, I am giving it a like! 😉

First of all, I think it's pretty cool the way you used the edf motor like that. The shaft poking up through the arm is interesting. How are you launching it? Do you just put it on a small object, so it sits on the battery and the props clear, or can you sit it on the prop nuts and still take off (have you tried? does it unscrew the prop nuts?)
Second of all: IS THAT A NISSAN SKYLINE?!?!?!?!!?!?

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..
