So pretty straight forward build, except I really struggled with filtering. Wanted to runaway like a rocket every time I started to throttle up. Eventually got rid of it by changing props and upping the filtering to set gyro_lowpass_hz = 150, set gyro_lowpass2_hz = 450, set dterm_lowpass_hz = 100, set dterm_lowpass2_hz = 270. I was going the other direction, down to 90/180 thinking everything attached to the stack was making it fly like a really beat up quad but it just made things worse.

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..
