It was time to build another Hyperlow quad. I love their frames, very strong frames and amazing designs. I am not much of a freestyler just some relaxed cruising around in the desert. I did not build it from the top plate down as recommended. It seemed easier to build it the traditional way from the bottom plate up by securing the arms temporarily with M3 nuts. I also cut a mount out of a aluminum sheet to secure the XT60 mount to the frame. It's a great strain reliever and makes it easier to unplug the battery.

I think this might have been the first build I've seen in 3 months that looks just like just as much fun to build and admire as it does to fly

Looks great frame... I love it !!

not a fan this xing motor in the desert... sand gets stuck between magnets which way too close to the stator
What is your experience ?

Thanks! Yes you are right, one better not crash on the desert floor, can't even takeoff and land from it, if there is no road near where I'm flying, I have to takeoff and land on the hood of my car. Otherwise the sand and tiny rocks etc. will ruin any motor quickly. There is also conductive materials in the sand that will short stuff out on your FC, VTX and ESCs.

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..
