This build was done for the currently running International Game of Whoop (IGOW:

It's essentially a 85mm 2-3S whoop with onboard DVR.

The setup is more or less what is now sold as Beta 85 pro2 (so F4 AIO, 1103 11000Kv and 2" props on a 85mm frame), but I added a trashcan canopy and upgraded the camera to a runcam nano v2 and the VTX to the Diamond VTX to have onboard DVR.

after some jello issues, I went with sticking the VTX directly to the FC with double-sided sticky tape, and to use zip ties to hold the canopy down. I also added some foam above and below the lens.

Now it flies jello-free, and it does so pretty well!
Happy with the build.

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..
