I wanted to reuse my existing emodia frame and build it with DJI Digital FPV system.

I painted the frame all white and used black as the other main color. Also added few red wires highlighting the motor and power wires.

I would have liked to make this build a bit slimmer but DJI camera forced me to use quite tall standoffs.
Really like how this black-and-white build turned out. It looks good and DJI Digital FPV is really good!!!

Custom 3D parts created for this build:

  • DJI antenna mount that fits Emodia frames antenna slot.
  • Camera mounts
  • DJI Air Unit mount that ensures air flow underneath the unit to to keep it cool.

Hey! I love your quad design and I'm rebuilding it. Got all the parts except for the 3d printed parts. Got myself a 3d printer but I suck at designing stuff at the moment. Would it be possible for you to share your .stl files? Would be greatly appreciated! You can email them to verheijen.webdevelopment@gmail.com if you want ofcourse.

Sure. Added the parts into Thingiverse and updated the build description. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4078083

How you paint it? Last time I tired it with acryl paint and it is runs off..

Just used normal rattle-can spray paint. (I think its solvent based so it sticks well and dries fast but not sure if its acrylic. I'll need to check that.).
Have also used spray paint cans in previous buils with success:

They are all holding their colors really well and colors don't peel off.

Well, I'll try again.. All of them looks great!

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. 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..
