I've been wanting a brushless whoop for a while and picked up the Newbeedrone brushless beta version. I was pretty dissapointed in it since the battery life was pretty bad with the high kv motors that it came with. So I cannibalized some parts from that to build this. I went with the 350mah 1s for flight time and because they have a "dangly" lead on them which made it easy to switch to the bt2.0 connector. It's not the lightest 65mm build out there but so far it flies really well, looking forward to try project mockingbird on it and emuflight.

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..
