This is the final DJI FPV System build that I am planning to do for now, I have a nice little fleet and I should concentrate on flying the machines not building them. Plus these HD rigs are bloody expensive...

This is an iFlight Titan DC5 frame, the slightly updated DC5 with the Air Unit mid-mounted above the stack and generally more pleasing proportions, built out with the Holybro HDV electronics and EMAX mid-range motors. The frame comes with all the TPU bits you need, but I like to personalise, so I went for a few complementary grey and red parts, and some shiny standoffs.

The build came out very nicely, clean as these DJI builds always are, and iFlight is doing good work with the DJI gear, everything fits and looks good doing so. This is my favourite HD machine so far; swoopy, quick, fluid, and recording smooth 16:9 with absolutely no props in view. Splendid.

Here's a clip of the maiden flight from early this morning:

very nice build. Very smooth footage
Did you fly it with a gopro ? I seems to me that the quad would be better balanced with the dji unit in the back ( not in the center), in order to offset the gopro weight in the front.
If you flew it wth the go pro, did it balance out well with your 5 S battery?

Thank you! And no, I actually haven't mounted GoPros on any of the DJI HD machines, the onboard 1080p is as good as my Sessions I use in my SD builds. As such, when I chose the Titan frame I was specifically looking for a frame that had the Air Unit in the centre for the very reasons you cite.

But unfortunately that means I can't offer any insight into how a rear-mounted AU would balance, say, a GoPro Hero7 on the front, apologies.

Do you have the link for the 3d printed sma antenna part? Thanks.

Unfortunately I do not, my apologies. That SMA mount comes with the iFlight frame and I have not managed to find an STL file for the part; I too wanted to reprint that with some colour, but alas, I could not find it anywhere.

Hi, this is a great build.
May I ask an off-topic question: how did you manage to embed your youtube video?

Jayembee67   Nov 07, 2019 

Most kind! And you can embed videos by getting the share link from YouTube and then putting that into the comment block. The system them just seems to handle that correctly.

Thank you! And yes, it's doing pretty much what I hoped it would do. :-)

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..

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..
