The Long Ranger....get it!!! So this is my long range 7" build. It is a Hyperlite Glide 7" frame with a CL Racing F7 V2.1 Dual flight controller and CL Racing 45amp esc, R9mm reciver, iFlight Force LR VTX (which I am going to swap for a TBS HV), RunCam Micro Eagle and Brotherhobby Avenger 2810 1180kv motors. Due to the size of the motors I went with a larger than usual capacitor, I installed a 50v 1000uf cap instead of the 35v that they send with the esc. I am using HQ props. I am experimenting with the 3.5 and 4 pitched props. I originally built this with Joshua Bardwell's Luminier 2407 1700kv motors. With those the 4" pitched props were battery suckers so looking forward to getting flights in with the bigger motors. Brain3d did an amazing job on all the 3d printed bits especially the Go Pro Hero mount.

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..
