Jumping on DJI FPV hype train with Armattan Marmotte DJI edition. Took parts from my Flosstyle. The motors are actually 2150kv.

All parts fit nicely. It was bit fiddly to mount the camera using the washers but I succeeded. I am powering the DJI airunit with Matek 9V BEC mounted on top of it and not using foam by Armattan and using double sided tape instead.

The dry weight is still bit high. I think I can loose some by using lighter motors. These MBPrimos are reaching EOL anyways.

The electronic was switched between several frames in recent year and I am having desyncs. I guess I need to check my soldering. The Banggood solder I used is trash.

After all it flies pretty well and I am very happy with the DJI FPV system.

question: can you tell me are the props in view of the DJI camera at about 25 or 30°

Hi, I am sorry for wrong info. I just noticed that this is the my Marmotte buld which is 5" and there are NO props in camera view. My initial comment was to my other Armattan Badger 6" build -> https://rotorbuilds.com/build/23617

This screenshot from DJI HD feed with 5" props. So there are NO props in view.

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..
