I've really been liking having a GPS on my Armattan Badger so I decided to build another 6 inch quad with a GPS as well. I looked at several 6 inch frames but so many of them are overpriced for what you actually get. I ended up going with a 6 inch SabotageRC Dingo since their frames are really Armattan frames just without a warranty. This is a great little frame and for $39 you really can't beat it.

I again used the Matek F722-SE F7 along with separate Spedix ES30 HV 3-6s BLHeli_S DShot600 30A ESCs. The GPS is the Matek M8Q-5883 GPS Module w/ Compass, it's working great for GPS Rescue mode and flight data.

I drew and printed the GPS / VTx antenna mount, arm guards, camera mount and the 2 piece GoPro Hero7 mount.

The rest of the build is fairly standard components consisting of a Runcam Micro Eagle, Xing 2207-1700kv motors, Rush Tank Ultimate VTx, Crossfire Nano Rx and Matek buzzer.

Sure, that'd be great. So technically not AUW. And if you weigh it without battery, what lipo would you typically run on this build? Thanks!

Without the GoPro7, mount and battery it weighs 393.4 grams.  I'll be using 1300 - 1800mAh 5S packs.

I really like this build. Looking at options for a 6" cruiser with GPS... are you able to get footage without props in view? And what kind of flight times are you seeing?

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..
