Not sure how I feel about the build. I don't like how I have the vtx mounted, but don't see any other options at the moment. The pdb layout does not allow for things to be as clean as I'd like. It over all looks very similar to my alien....

07/29/16 update: This has been one of my all time favorite set ups! the EMAX 2205 motos with 30 amp littlebees has so much punch! And the KISS FC has this guy flying solid! Frame has held up for many crashes and does a great job protecting the components. I still wish it came with a better way to mount the TX and vtx like their other models.

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..
