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.

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..
