Gnarly FPV Primo 10X Version with GEPRC GEP-12A-F4 f411 2-4s v1.1 AIO FC/ESC, Runcam Nano 2 camera with necessary Nano 2 Primo Canopy Adaptor. Used 1103 800Kv Lil floaters motors--would not recommend these for this build. Motors are good, however, the mounting patter has only two holes (see picture below of motor bottom). This 2-hole mounting patter does not align with the holes for motors #1 & #4 on the frame. You can actually see this in the all-up-weight (AUW) picture below (i.e. with battery on scale). The motor wires for motros #1 & #4 come out of the motor facing motors #2 & #3 respectively. Only a matter of time before the get ripped out of the coils. I would suggest going with Airblade 1103 8000 Kv or Flywoo Nin NT103 7650Kv which have 4-hole mounts (which Gnarly FPV recommends on his website!) instead. Made it work with the Lil Floaters for now though and she's quite a Fun Flyer!

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..
