I saw the Diatone MAMBA f7 had multiple LED connections - so I decided to build a kwad that made use of all of them. Turns out only the LED pad near the USB connector is addressable, the other LED pins are controlled by a button with a decent selection of colors and patterns. I made use of two as you can see by super gluing them to the side of the sled. Overall the build wasn't too difficult, I did need to file out some parts of the frame - the tolerances are REALLY tight.

First hover/easy flight went well. Definitely a different flight characteristic. I feel like the camera is lower than I'm used to when I flip or roll.

The r9mm antenna gets decent signal, at 100mw I don't really dip below 80 rssi

Updates to come!

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..
