I produce monthly videos for a department at my school, so I built a cinewhoop for the sake of getting more dynamic shots. A few brief notes:

  • Motors are relatively cool, I'm pushing about 40% throttle to get off the ground

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..
