DISCLAIMER: None of these pictures are accurate anymore. This was my first ever frame and it has become a harley quinn meets frankenstein mash up of parts.

I reused the frame from my first build, and used leftover parts i had to put this together.
Honestly I loved putting this one together because I felt a lot more confident in my soldering skills. I tucked the wires betters , and it was the first time i dealt with individual ESCs and a PDB.
I had an issue on first arming. Long story short I re-soldered a signal wire, changed out a bad/weak motor, re-flashed all the ESCs, and adjusted my endpoints on Cleanflight.
The only part left to add is a camera.

So i put a Foxeer monster micro on that i had lying around, and a friend gave me some off brand 200mw vtx. The feed is crystal clear and has decent range on it.

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..
