Very fast and fun quad, more fun than the 5" because I can't kill someone with this and it can do some really tight gaps.

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..
