I will write more about this later, but enjoy the pictures and video for now.

Here is the HD video: 2.5K 4:3 h.265 60fps

Here is the DVR video. So you can see how the quad handles the extra weight and the voltage sag.

Hi, nice Build Dude!
Can I ask you a question? How is the All in One FC/ESC handlig the 4s with this big motors and 3x3x3 HQ Props. Did you not burn a ESC or Motor? Thank you for your feedback.

Cheers :)

Thanks! I was a bit skeptical about these AIO boards on 4s with 1404 motors but honestly the GEPRC board that I’m using is taking it like a champ. The motors are barely warm after a running a full pack and it is about 90 plus degrees outside. The same with the AIO board, I have NO indication that it is having any issue running it 4s. In fact, it flies smoother with 4s with the same stock PIDs than on 3s. On 3s I get some oscillation that is completely gone when I use a 4s lipo.

thank you for the feedback. Sounds good to me, I was a bit woried about the all in one AIO Board, but I will try it. the only thin is that i run 1404 4850kv motors....we will see :D

I was talking to another guy and he uses the same motor as you and it seems to work well with the HQ 3x2 Bi-Blade props. The AIO boards is handling 4s lipo without any problems. I can only speak for the GEPRC boards because that is the only one I have tried so far.

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..
