Kebab FPV continues to innovate and provide us with cool new products. I was sucked in and made a quad!
Opinions and why I chose the parts:

Fouride Frame: It was just a really nice frame (I got the 5" one) and looked unique but also well made. Its a true ____ to put together and required a bit of sanding on the central standoff hole, but all in all a sensationally well designed frame. Carbon is all chamfered too contrary to the pictures showing it to be straight.

2203 3450kv motors: Again, they were just cool and innovative so I picked up 5. They are incredibly smooth, super nice finish and easy to mount. They also have 8+ inches of wire so really handy design. They also come with cap head screws. Downside is that they get strangely warm (30-35 degrees) when spinning without props at 60% throttle. Not sure why but they sound good and I assume its just because they are small.

Goku GN745 and HM600: I got these for £50 on banggood (yeah I know...) and the f745 chip, 40a of power and a 600mw vtx seemed a good deal. The board is easy to solder to and comes with black wiring and xt60 (which is cool) and yeah: its good. Ran a 1000uf cap because I am running 3450kv 4s.

Foxeer Razer: Solid cam, looks good, used it before and it's really nice. They are easy to get hold of and I don't see why you would want too many other cams over this; really spectacular for the price.

HGLRC M80: I tested these out a while back and I get 25 - 40 sats consistently; its a beast. Best GPS I can get for under £30 (well under £10) and it performs like some really high end ones. Quick lock and good, consistent, connection - even when flipping around.

All in all I think I would recommend all parts in the build (even the heat shrink and stuff haha) and am happy with how it turned out!

FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..
