How do you like those motors? I'm doing a very similar build this week, and this will be my first Cobra build.

Definitely! Try them. They're tri-blades.

Just realised i commented on your build. Don't like those motors at all unfortunately, pretty weak for a 325gm quad.

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..
