Im going to try something a bit interesting. iFlight has a new AIO 40A ESC with a F4 FC built in. One board, 30x30 mount.
I am going to 3d print an adapter and install the DJI Caddx Vista VTX on top the AIO board, under a 3D printed pod for the FIVE33 Switchback frame.

If my math is right, I will be at around 225-240g without lipo. Pretty damn good for a DJI racer.

For now I run 5s, but may swap motors or do motor scaling and go to 6s eventually.

As soon as the vista shows, ill build this and get some photos and videos up here!

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..
