This build is going to become my main freestyle quad. I figured I wanted to build something a bit lighter and more capable for maneuverability, especially doing proximity stuff.
I'm still going to be keeping my Rooster for cinematic stuff like chasing or when I want smooth videos.

I first built it with a Unify HV, but it didn't fit above the camera like how I wanted to mount it. I could've stuck it above the FC but then there was no room for a LiPo strap. I ended up just getting a Unify V3 which works perfectly. Luckily I can use the Unify HV in my Rooster as something a bit more reliable and for better quality.

To do:
Upload PIDs + filtering here when done.

Edit 1:
First flight. Not good. Esc chucked a fit, and now doesn't work. Going to have to get another one now, so more waiting :(

Edit 2:
ESC has been replaced, and I've done a few tuning FPV flights. This thing has insane punch, and responsiveness - exactly what I wanted. videos to come when tune is done.

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..
