This is my very first modern FPV-Quad. I started this hobby 5 years ago with a Hobbyking Robocat and a Naze32.. it never flew good ... xD

This drone on the other hand flies like a dream!
Its a relatively simple build, nothing special just sharing my solutions with you guys!

Printed parts linked in parts list.
Will soon be adding R9-Mini reciever!

I like the lights in front. Are those for night flying?

It was mostly for fun, but also to ever have a change at learning LOS-flying. Much easier to se its orientation!

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..
