A nutmeg build. Flown several times just for testing on 4s without a gopro. Flies well enough, but I still need to tune the pids and rates a bit and cut a couple more props to test. Motors come down nice and cool even when I cant help but throw a power loop towards the end of the pack.

At the moment im running the DALPROP 4045BN cut down. but I have some: -DALPROP 5040 and 5045 -Gemfan 4052 -HQprop 75mm ducted and -Gemfan 3052 that I still have to cut down and run a pack or two through.

UPDATE 1-4-20: Photos are now out of date - Most of this build was transfered over to a 6s squirt build which is also published on my profile. This has become just a bit of a parts bin quad. Im printing a new set of ducts that Ill have a session mount on. The F440 is totally overkill for this build but its what I have and whats applicable to the 4s limit of the f20 II motors.

UPDATE 1-8-20: New iteration nearing completion. 1 of 2 new duct prints complete. Photos are added - White ducts with session are the new setup

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..
