The AvocadoXL is an experiment in frame design where the battery sits in an internal compartment at a 45-degree angle. This enables the center of gravity and moment of inertia to be sequestered right in the middle of the prop line. I've noticed flight characteristics benefit from this balancing acts as the quad responds quicker and smoother to controller input as there isn't as much weight above of below the quadcopter to throw around ( the more localized to center moment of inertia )

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..
