This is one of my earlier builds and is a bit heavier than my mini racers. It is great for long range flights with a gopro and can still whip around a race track. The 12amp esc's are a little under powered for these motors, but the rotorgeeks 12amps have been running strong for months now on the 2208's.

What sort of flight times are you getting with this?

Ya it's a tradeoff. Everything in this hobby seems to be! lol

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad.

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..
