This is my current favorite frame to fly right now - my Falcon Multirotors Cinebarge. It’s a long range HD 7 inch frame with a big payload and long steady flight times. I tried my best to find amazon prime links for you guys, but some parts just weren’t available, like the gps unit, which you can get from GETfpv. It’s not required to enjoy this build, but with the newly added gps osd features on the dji goggles, it might be worth it.

With a 2200mah 6s, I’m able to get 7-8 minutes flight time cruising. I’ve done a few shoots from moving vehicles with this setup and have been amazed at how long I can hold a chase for. The tuning was tricky on 4.1 Betaflight, but with 4.2 now available it’s been a breeze. I have included my PIDs in the image below for you guys to try out.

The build time for this rig is about 1.5-2 hours depending on your skill level. The most annoying part will be extending the wires for the DJI FPV unit to the FC. Other than that, everything is pretty plug-n-play. These motors come with nice long wires, so you won’t have to extend anything.

Sweet build! How is that ESC/motor combo holding up on 6S and 7"?

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..
