I have shoehorned in a DJI Air Unit into my Geprc Cinepro 4K.

While in pieces I have conformal coated the ESC and FC. I've had to stretch the top and bottom plate to fit in the Air Unit in by only using a single pair of screws on the front of the bottom plate and rear of the top plate. I've also been able to do away with the VTX from the stack.

I have tried to upgrade the FC to BF4.1, but because I'm not very good with tuning etc. I have re-flashed the shipped 3.5.7. With the added 3d prints to hold the Air Unit and cage protectors and a Caddx ND filter the dry weight is 165g. Adding a 4s 650mah takes it to 247g.

On paper this feels like a brave but misguided idea, and yet there it is! How is it flying?

The addition of the air unit, to my untalented fingers, hasn't adversely affected the flight characteristics.  I think it's 14g heavier than the standard setup.  I've only been cruising with it so far, but that's about all I plan on doing with it.

Excellent work, this looks far from unskilled!  🙂

Well I'm about to wholesale plagiarise your XL8 DJI build. It looks really cool and I have a spare frame just sitting on my shelf.  Just need to get another air unit and a Matek PDB that doesn't have a VTX built in.

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..
