Finally trying out crossfire. Lite module and diversity nano rx. Very nice! :)

Back to 7" cruising, messing with odd DIY Lithium Ion packs mostly. The flight footage below is using an 4S 6000 Liitokala 21700 cell pack, and the first time I went any sort of distance. I've also been enjoying punchier flights with the RDQ 5s 2200. These 6mm arms are giving me the best looking 7" HD footage I've managed so far. Still needs work but Jello is the least of my problems now.

Nice flight! I'm in the midst of a similar build. Source One 7", Avenger 2507 1750kV, either GemFan 7042 bi-blades or te 7040 tri-blades. Your flight gave me some confidence that the older TBS 25A ESCs i have will be up to the task. Any idea what sort of peak amps you get on a punch out with 5S packs?
Happy flying!

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..
