Such a nice build. I've been building a raiju with almost this exact same setup. I'm having major issues with the quad twitching though. What version of BF are you running? You're still using multishot?

looks great. i am puzzling how did you connect motor 5 and 6 to the Fc

i think i used PPM and LED contacts remapped using BF resource commands.  Had to use multishot instead of dshot due to DMA conflicts.

Looks like it has a vast power.
Did you manage to remove the jello?

Jello comes and goes. I'm still working on the tune, my camera mount can slide down such that the camera touches the bottom plate, and I had a bent prop in this video. With my current tune and clean props, I don't get jello unless the camera slides down. I should probably put a piece of foam tape under it.

Thanks for posting this!! I've been wanting to build a 1407 hex and didn't want to tear down my Raiju to do it. I just bought this frame... can't beat that price.

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..
