A quad I built for indoor flying. Designing cam holder/canopy was the most challenging and satisfying part. As usual I made it from high impact polystyrene bent using hot air. Camera is fixed in place by putting its lens between two pieces of adhesive foam glued to the inside walls of the canopy. 29 grams dry + lipo. I fly it on 1S HV 450mah Gaoneng batteries. Had to increase minimum power to make motors spin on arming. Maximum cell voltage also needed to be increased to 4.5 in BF. Otherwise BF considers HV lipo to be a 2 cell battery with extremely low voltage and gives voltage alerts even though battery is fully charged to 4.35V. Warning and minimum cell voltages needed to be lowered in BF too not to have low voltage alerts flashing right after take off. I didn't know what to do until I saw Nick Burns' video. Thank you Nick!:)

Love your canopy design! Looks like something from 80s Lasertag. :)

Didn't think of that:) But now that you've brought it up, I also feel a bit of 80's vibe in this low-poly design:)

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..
