The frame for this build is the Splash by Jack's 3D Printing - it can be purchased through his Facebook group with all parts and the GoPro mount of your choice for $115 (there is no option to select this via the Rotorbuilds system due to his not having a storefront).

It's a pretty straightforward build, one idiosyncrasy being that I installed the FC/ESC stack backwards to accommodate situating the battery connector directly behind the GoPro. If you do this, you have to adjust some orientation parameters as well as do some resource shuffling in Betaflight, Joshua Bardwell has a great video on how to do this (thanks as always JB!)

Also a nice trick I picked up on the aforementioned Jack's 3D Printing group was adding a magnetic micro USB adaptor to the FC - makes connecting to my computer easy peasy despite the relative inaccessibility of the port once everything is assembled. I went with this set of cords, though didn't include it in the build list because I only used a few parts for this build:

Jack Higgins is not the designer of this cinewhoop.
He's just a manufacturer, who had access to the files and is now producing without authorization, and says it's his creation, it's a lie.

The designer / creator of the frame is Valter Silva

As far as I know Jack has never claimed that this design was his. At least I have not heard or seem him do so anyway. Ya'll need to kiss and make up. Also, it's a Splash I don't care what you say :)

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..
