This is my Le Drib Skyeliner (Non-HD) build. It's a premium build, decked out with crossfire, a robust electronic selection, and great GoPro video. I have spent quite a bit of time refining this build. Some issues I had were the GoPro mount, which always broke. My FC kept dying on 6s, so I went with one rated up to 8s. My Tramp ended up dying as well, so I opted for the durable Rush Tank Mini. Finally, I swapped to POPO motors, which are really nice and just a
convenience thing for me. The GoPro mount also holds a custom ND filter, made out of ND sheet. Also, I tucked every wire as an added bonus to my neat & tidy build.

My Design Requirements:
-Durable
-Reliable
-Optimal antenna placement
-Backup systems- Hellgate DUO, GPS, CRSF GPS coordinate TELM readout
-Light as possible, without sacrificing durability
-Protects GoPro
-KISS
-Neat and tidy
-Cost Effective

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..
