Return of NanoShark!

My original NanoShark proto (Thanks to LAZD of Falcon Multirotors) build was probably my favorite looking micro of all time, but suffered poor performance from the Sunnysky 0703 and oversized LiPos. I've been flying a BetaFPV Meteor65 here and there and the performance from the BT2.0 connector and 0802 motors had me thinking it might be time to revive my favorite 1S build. I'm glad I did! The thing is an absolute blast! I will likely rebuild it extra pretty. I was in such a hurry I just soldered the pin connectors to the ESC instead of lengthening motor wire.

The BT2.0 hype is real. I don't see the normal sag at all anymore. In fact I've almost killed a few of these RDQ 450s by landing at 3.2 thinking it would bounce back to 3.6 but I'd actually flown it down to 3.2. I'm getting over 4 minutes easy of full derp around the warehouse, and have flown for 5 minutes on a few occasions. This is my warehouse machine for sure. :)

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..
