Quite a difficult build due to the cramped space just behind the power input pads. I had to actually snip the 4-in-1 board slightly around the pads to ensure that the positive pad wouldn't short with the frame in a crash. I also added a number of coats of conformal coating and liquid electrical tape. In hindsight I should have probably flipped the board around and put the power leads towards to the front of the quad.

I thought I'd try something a bit different and add mamba 'flashbang' LEDs to the motors. I also added a Matek BEC to this build as the flight controller isn't a HDV specific board.

Note that the tray for the DJI air unit is a custom TPU mount available on thingiverse. This shifts the air unit towards the front of the frame slightly to give the cable a little more slack and adds an XT60 power cable holder to the side of the frame.

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..
