With my style of flying, I broke three bottom plates on the Rasvelg frame and pods. I saw LAZD flying his prototype at the palace of fine arts, and I just had to give this one a shot! I plan to try it with 4" props soon and perhaps swap out the tiny TBS linear antenna for a Triumph. Only took a few hrs to extend the motor wires, solder in a new FPV camera and button her back up. Can't wait for a maiden flight tomorrow!

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..
