7" AstroX Switch Freestyle long range mountain destroyer.
AstroX Switch Freestyle with optional 7" arms, both bought from SkyHobbies Singapore.
This is the 4th AstroX frame in my fleet, the carbon quality is by far the best of all the premium frames I have owned over the years.
T-Motor were selected as this is the brand I have used on almost all my builds, top quality, performance and durability.
Omnibus F4 V5 Flight Controller, after leaving KISS to go back to Betaflight I've always found the Omnibus to be feature packed and good build quality.
Hobbywing Xrotor ESC is a solid performer and should easily be capable of handling the power requirements of this build.
Rotor Riot Swift 2 (not in the standard silver RR case as I accidentally snapped a mounting screw in the case during build)
Tramp HV VTX had a spare so used it here.
TBS Crossfire Micro V2 for confidence out long range.
Graupner 6.5x4.5 Race-Prop, never used these before. Massive gap in the market for 7" props, I went for these as Graupner have a good reputation and couldn't source 7" HQ's in the UK, hopefully HQ will soon release more 7" offerings.

this is super clean. I would recommend some "braided wire sleeve" to make it even cleaner instead of leaving the triple motor cable exposed.

Thanks, I wanted to use the braided sleeve but couldn't get it in time for the build. will definitely use it on my next build.

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..
