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.
Cheers!

Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage..

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..
