It is my first FPV drone. I have completed the build and did a few flights. The thingy is way too fast for the beginner, much faster than emulator I am used to. Nevertheless, I like it very much.

Hi, would have been nice to see more pics....How sturdy is the frame?

The frame is very rigid. Survived a few crashes without any damages. During the flight acceleration sometimes goes to 5.8G and no consequences as well.

Recorded some flight video -

I'm getting used to handle it.

It just happens that 2.5" are easier to build and fly then 2", and 3" are easier than 2.5", in general.

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..
