The name says it all: 3", 82.5g, vista, crossfire. what more do you need? :)

Super happy with the build and it rocks on 4S 450s.

Build is as simple as it gets: Build a toothpick bottom half, build the vista top half. put together and done.
The receiver has plenty of space between the FC and the vista so no worries.

I used the flyspeck bottom plate, but mainly just because I had one. I think any 3" toothpick bottom will do as long as the usb port fits through the bottom (makes for a lower build than the new "toothpick FCs" which have the usb on the side/top.

Here's some flight footage for you to enjoy!

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..
