I forgot I had built this little thing and hadn't posted it, so here it is. Much preferred over the 65mm, both for the greater authority and 3s as opposed to 2s. Flies great outdoors and even in the wind, though you'll wonder why you pull so many amps in kite weather. 1404 4600kv 3s on Gemfan biblades has been great, range is excellent with the full-size Immortal-T and video is crystal clear all the way out with the TrueRC Singularity even on 25mw. Flight times from 5-8 minutes depending on, well, high winds. It accelerates and handles excellently.

Looks pretty good! I hope something like this will be one of my next builds.

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..
