After having flown a Babyhawk r to the absolut limit I thought it was time for something bigger. This is my first 5inch quad build from the start up.

Shoutout to greg for sharing his clean looking Marmotte! https://rotorbuilds.com/build/20854

3D printed parts are on the way to have a better mounting solution for both dji antennas. They seem ok for now but I don't know what's gonna happen in a crash! Also I am thinking about adding a gps module and a buzzer to it.

There is nothing really special about this build apart from soldering the esc ribbon cable straight to the FC to have the battery plug sticking out the front. Nano rx is just ziptied down in the middle.

Weight with Battery strapped on is about 618 grams. Gonna update it soon as our kitchen scale is known for its inaccuracy.

Very clean looking build. Great job. Btw. what is you dry weight (quad with props). I would like to compare it to my Marmotte.

strap weighs around 2 grams and with it on dry weight is 412 grams. How about your Marmotte?

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..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
