Couple of months ago I got my first brushless quadcopter. It was a aurora 100 from Banggood.
Since then a lot has changed and upgraded. The aurora 100 is known for its bad camera so that was something I wanted to change out and switched to a runcam micro swift. (which i painted (kinda messy)blue). The bottom plate is the 2.5mm upgrade from Banggood, and to make it 3s capable I changed the motors to DYS 1104 6500KV. In its current form its a lot heavier than the stock Aurora 100, 73.06 grams. It's still a lot of fun on 2S but the real fun begins with the 3s on this one.

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV 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..
