It flies so nice, I had to build it twice. I didnt know if I would like flying without a GoPro strapped to my quad, but this 3" is so fun to freestyle and has been getting more stick time, than my 5". This time around, I chose a night camera for those after sunset sessions. I got to fly with some awesome pilots when I visited Hawaii over the summer, and they flew till after dark with their night cameras. Now that I got my first 3" build out of the way, I decided to make a balance...Night and Day, Tomax and Xamot. (80's G.I Joe reference) Everything else under the hood is identical to my first build in every way, only difference is the FPV camera and sometimes the prop colors.

Would you consider it viable as an HD pocket rocket with a Runcam Split and an Asgard AiO?

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..
