This is a IpulseRC Warpquad String Theory 200 mm frame with a custom milled FPV pod (files found on RCGroups). It's a very light and agile quad that is my secondary frame if the Alien has a defect or is stuck in a tree.

Weights: 227 g without LiPo, 392 g AUW.

Do you have a link to those pieces you cut? How much would you charge for a set of them?

You can find a thread about them on RCGroups. I didn't cut them myself, I bought the Warpquad from someone who contracted someone to do it.

Aha! I was wondering if it was something like that. Have you had to use it yet?

A few times, and I'd say it works for up to 40 m in tall grass, which is usually enough to find the quad.

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..
