When BetaFPV release a 20A AIO I immediately had the urge to build a frame around that amazing piece of electronics.
What I came up with is the GatehunterX, a separate arm 5" ultralight frame. The frame Incl. hardware eights 31g and the arms are locked by a
bicycle chain ring bolt that also looks pretty cool. The Pod is a special design for heavier builds with considerably improved camera protection.
I messed around with 1606, 2204 and even 2207 motors on this setup, finally concluding that 2204 is the best option even if it makes sub 250g pretty much impossible.
Check out my Youtube video I made an entire series of 3 or 4 on that specific frame and all the builds I tested. I'll link them in the comments!

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..
