Bought an UltraFox a loooooong time ago and never built it. Had some parts, decided to throw a Caddx Vista on it.

Added 2mm to the base of the pod to get enough room inside and opened the camera area up a bit to fit the DJI camera. Modeled a 30x30 to 20x20 adapter to fit the Vista on the top of the stack and keep it isolated from the 4in1.

White balance in the pictures sucks. Sorry.

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..
