Source One 5" Slammed - DJI FPV Digital - XING 2150kv 5s

This is a derivative from my original Source One v0.1 5" Slammed 5s build (https://rotorbuilds.com/build/23386). I put more effort in to this build because I 3d printed all new parts to match the green motors. The camera mount is a remixed 3d model that was designed for a Floss 2.0 frame. I had to shorten it to fit the 20mm standoff and modify the bottom of the mount to fit an Immortal T antenna. I was able to maintain slammed profile even though I converted it to a digital DJI FPV System. But in order to get the air unit to fit, I had to remove 2 of the middle rear standoffs and I used double side tape to secure it to the frame. I also rotated the 4in1 ESC clockwise 90 degrees because the power leads were way to close to the DJI Air Unit. Technically there was space, but it was literally less than 1mm gap, so that was way too close for comfort. Because I rotated the ESC, I did have to remap it in Betaflight, but that was easy to do in CLI.

The only thing left that I never got around to making is the rear antenna mount. I was planning to create a simple mounted that would sit on the top plate and it will support antenna at a 30-degree angle, but that never happen. As it currently stands, the quad’s dry weigh is 402g and the includes everything except for the antennas and mount.

Unfortunately, this build was short lived because I end up selling this frame to a friend. But I did move all the electronics to a Floss 2.0 frame (https://rotorbuilds.com/build/23808).

The single biggest mistake with this build is how I mounted the capacitors because the solder pads ripped off for both caps, so I end up soldering one larger 1000uf cap right at the power lead.

Thanks! But all of this is only made possible from your 3D models.

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..
