Had a lot of fun building the Raven!
This is seriously the sexiest frame I have ever used.

Big fan of the Diatone stacks also. I was worried about overheating in the small canopy, but there's actually a lot of room and airflow isn't an issue.
I've put 20 packs through this quad now with no issues at all, even at 800mW power.

I purchase all my gear from KiwiQuads in New Zealand.

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad.

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..
