EDIT: have updated the camera to a Foxeer Predator Nano 4.

This is my perfect 65mm prop build with my Skele7on frame series.

Built with the following components this flies amazingly and is really quite a cheap build too.
Its lightweight (45g dry) while including an onboard DVR and decent camera:

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..
