Fast and crazy freestile drone. Custom LEDs, top components used to ensure maximum durability and reliability...
BetaFlight 3.3.0 with PT1 and dynamic filtering.
Most appropriate batteries for such "hungry" build - Tattu R-Line 1550mah 4s 95c.

Main settings for this setup (!!!USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!! only with FC softmounted and current build - !!!WILL BURN!!! your motors and ESCs if you have noisy build!!! If not sure - DON'T USE my config, it's NOT SAFE):

feature ANTI_GRAVITY
feature DYNAMIC_FILTER
set gyro_notch1_hz = 0
set gyro_notch2_hz = 0
set dterm_lowpass_type = PT1
set gyro_lowpass_type = PT1
set anti_gravity_gain = 3500
set setpoint_relax_ratio = 1
set dterm_setpoint_weight = 100
set gyro_stage2_lowpass_hz = 736
set tpa_rate = 13
set tpa_breakpoint = 1650

PIDs are on photo below...

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..
