Hi, all!

I'm back with another build log/review of Xbee's latest frame - The XB-X V2 - It's their follow-up to the previous model, The XB-X Mk2.
You can watch my reviews of Xbee's previous frames at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTgOwqCPrBM-AKWNTy_xMVQ

I know I said I was going to make the XB-X Mk 2 my main flyer but it was too hard to do when its successor was already going to be released very shortly after, at the time.

Edit - I've taken off the batteries because I think most people will have old batteries they can use anyway so it doesn't apply for most builds.

Now, this is a work in progress so please bare with me as I slowly, but steadily update this until it's finished.

P.S - omg I didn't realise how much money this build would cost lol

But I think it's shrink tube or mesh. I'll have to ask Xbee as I'm also curious.

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..
