For this build I hitched a ride on the hype train.

I am building practically the same quad and I was wondering what your PID's are, Just to put me in the ballpark. Thanks.

My PIDs are 4.

You might just want to start with the default PIDs and go from there. If you aren't seeing any oscillations during flight you may only want to adjust your rates according to your taste.

Super clean build! What's the AUW (without battery)?

How did you get the HS1190 to fit on the camera mount with the 3d printed parts? I haven't figured out how to get mine to fit yet...

I just took a knife to it and made it fit by trimming away at the back portion of the rubber.

How is everything on this build holding up durability wise? It looks freaking clean!

I'll have to report back on durability because as of right now only testing flights. Pics were taken yesterday evening.

Awesome build! I love the colors. How do you like the ZMX V3? I think this is the first I've seen of them.

Hard to tell with the limited LOS flights I've had with them but they do feel very powerful. I had to get pics up on the site before the whole thing starts looking too gross :-p

Did you use a filter to get clean power from the vtx to your camera?

Camera is being powered by straight battery voltage which doesnt seem to be a problem on the HS1190. Powering the cam this way allows for the built-in OSD to show your battery voltage.

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..
