I recently acquired the new DJI FPV System, I didn't mean to, but my hand was forced, honest. And so this is my first build, done whilst waiting for "official" Air Unit capable frames to arrive; an iFlight XL5-v4, retrofitted with a bunch of TPU bits.

It's quite a tall frame to start with, so fitting in the stack and Air Unit was tight but didn't require any modifications beyond flipping the rotor arms under the bottom plate - the build was surprisingly easy. This was helped by using the Holybro Kakute F7 HDV stack, which is truly plug and play with the DJI gear. It makes the build far too clean and easy, I'm almost embarrassed, almost...

The props are in view of course, but are down in the lower third, which is fine. And on 5S this machine flies so nicely, quick and snappy, and the DJI kit is little short of spectacular, it makes flying a whole new experience.

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..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
