This is a build I did back in 2015 when this Frame first hit the scene. This frame came from MRM and uses their high quality carbon fiber, and is not the glossy carbon glass that the eMax version came in. This was the first 4S mini build I did and chose to go with SunnySky 2207-2100kv motors & some slim 20A ESC's to push 6x4.5" HQprops. I also installed the CC3D flight controller because it was what I had at the time.

After tuning the quad and flying it, I did not care for the CC3D and sold this rig to fund a new build :)

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..
