An update to my Core Low frame design. This one has 6mm arms in a squash configuration to pull the props out of the view more since I am using a Runcam Split 3 Micro loaded in a pod for recording HD footage only (not for FPV view). I am still running the arms inside for a 20-10-20 configuration that allows me to fit the FC and VTX in the rear position and the 4-in-1 ESC in the center. This update reduces the AUW of the build 100g from the V1 setup running a GoPro copy HD cam for recording.

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..
