I built this quad with the DJI system and literally the next morning I saw a link for the HD version of the frame,... such is the hobby lol.

I'm using an iFlight 12v 2a regulator to power the DJI Air Unit. The fc is a Radix 20x20 and the esc is an Aikon 35a 20x20.

The weight of the quad is 385 grams without battery.Alt Tag

the difference is the camera plates and some tpu mounts for the unit and antenna. I used some cam mounts I found on Thingiverse for the cam. The air unit will fit in the middle or the rear.

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..
