Hey I'm sort of new to drones and have only built a small kit drone but I decided to put some work in and try to make a freestyle FPV quad. This doesent have the frame or receiver yet but I would like your help to see if it would all work together! :)

I was wondering if the capacitor that people put over 6s batterys were really nessesery as I would like to cut of every shaving on this build

I know that it smooths the power curve but still

That stack is 20x20 but the VTX is 30x30, so they won't mount together cleanly.

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..
