Amazed by the micro raven frame, I got my hands on one.
See https://rotorbuilds.com/build/18441 for the original.
I really like how this build turned out with the colors and everything. The original frame is a "raven", but to me it looks more like a kingfisher.

The build is fairly simple and I like that the crsf receiver is tucked nicely into the canopy and keeps the build flat.
Diamond VTX provides onboard DVR without adding much weight or height to the stack.
On the photos I mounted the HQ 2.5" props, but I've changed to the avan rush as overall I feel they are smoother.

The frame would fit 3" props as well, but for now I am enjoying it as a 2.5", 2S quad.
Dry it weighs 57g, AUW with 2S 350mAh is 79g

If you are interested in the frame, you can ask Evan at Nomad UAV. It's not in the store yet but maybe he'll sell you one :)

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..
