This is my main mid-long range rig, you can find all the parts & gear below!
A couple of build tips:
1) Install your stack using nylon screws, they absorb more vibrations than the steel ones.
2) Apply Locktite on all your main screws and on motor screws.
3) Make sure that the Immortal T is NOT COVERED BY THE ARM while the drone is moving forward, so Install it like mine, even a bit lower.
4) Vtx is discontinued. Use a TBS Unify HV instead.

YOU CAN FIND MY PIDs IN THE IMAGE BELOW. REMEMBER TO NOT FULLY COPY/PASTE THEM, JUST USE AS POSSIBLE GUIDELINES FOR YOUR PERSONAL TUNING!

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..
