Technically my first complete build (though I'm currently building 5 other quads of various sizes). I haven't actually flown yet except for on simulators (100+ hours). I came into the hobby with analogue parts but then DJI announced the HD system, so I bit the bullet, sold my analogue gear and decided to re-build everything to support HD. I purchased a bunch of parts not really knowing the technicals to proper motor/prop pairing etc and ultimately ended up with so many different frames/motors and boards etc that I ended up building a bunch of them. I have another build with cheaper parts that I'll use for my first flight :)

  • 6S build
  • Crossfire nano RX
  • Speedybee bluetooth
  • Matek GPS
  • Fully comformal coated (except for DJI equipment)

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..
