First quad - I wanted to build the Alien mostly because of the rotor riot videos. I wanted an OSD so I followed what Mr. Steele does.

I really like the Kiss FC/esc combo. If they included an OSD it would be perfect. Regarding the OSD, I'm not sold on the the PNP50. I don't need the filtered power because of the HV unify pro, so all it provides is the OSD and current draw. It's expensive and too big for just that purpose.

Other than that I switched to dal triblades because the HQ props are far too fragile for my ability level.

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..
