I was thinking on going 4s or 3s but I wanted a mini beast!

I went for the build on 4s and not disappointed, got 5-6min flight time with the 450mah 4s Ministar with emax avan rush 2.5" props. Will update later for the other set I have.

it is a beast !! I built mine on xing 1204 motors with same lipo

may I ask why did you opt for the whoop board and not the 16mm ?

also I suggest you test flight without the vifly...

I know man it is so gooood!
It is a funny story , I was going to make it hd with a split cam but then I decided to save for a insta 360go. I already had the betafpv AIO so that is the main reason.
I'll try it this week! It has been raining in my country so I had to wait . But my buzzer isn't working because my buzz- pad is dead

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..
