HD Squirt V2

Made a complete rebuild to my Squirt V2.
My original build was having some issues with fpv feed, as well with some twitching issues. Now I changed practically everything, except the frame.
Wanted to add the HD quality fpv system to really see where I'm flying, so I designed the mounts to fit DJI fpv parts in.
Cam Mounts, air unit mount and antenna mount: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3871212
Adjustable GoPro mount (not my design): https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3564993

Printed all parts using Sainsmart tpu. It just looks SO GOOD! :)
I used larger1608 3200kv motors to compensate the added weight. These motors use M3 screws, so I had to drill the motor mount holes bigger.
Also printed some soft mounts to avoid any motor vibrations.
Weight without GoPro and lipo is now 368g. Will have some test flights soon to see how it flies now.
I really like the looks!! :)

Did you install a external BEC? or how did you manage for the Air unit itself not to get static images.

If i may answer, the air unit has good filtering I connect mine straight to 4s no cap no static

thank you. i didn't notice this comment earlier. i also connect straight to 4S when not using 5-6S. i use the cap in esc. don't know if it helps anything, but as @kwadkenstine stated dji has good filtering 👍

Awesome build dude! Looks awesome. What issues were you having with FPV feed and the yaw? I'm having some myself and trying to figure it out.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
