Just a simple Reverb build, nothing too fancy... As usual tried to use high quality components and tried some new stuff like the new TBS Pro32 VTX ( that missed the photo shoot ), the smaller KISS 25A ESCs, the Foxeer Predator Mini V4 and the Azure JohnyFpv props.

Named the build Blackfish since the previous reverb I owned drowned on a river just two weeks after building it. :) Hope it gives it good luck!

KISS V2, F40 Pros III 2400 motors, all black wiring - not a single colored wire in order to make those in-field repairs a bit more fun!
460grams without Lipo.

Only challenge of the build was to fit all the components on the stack. The TBS Pro32 is a litlle bit thicker than the normal Unify I usually use and really had to use low spacers to make it fit. It clears the top plate by just half milimeter.


Here's a couple of packs with it!

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..
