This build was to test some new parts sent to me from a few vendors. BuddyRC sent me a set of 2205-2550kv motors to test. Sunrise sent me a set of their 30A Cicada BLHeli_S ESC's to test. And APC sent me some of their new 5x4x3 Props to test. The MRM225 frame was the perfect choice as it will take a lot of abuse, and also provides a Yi mount so I can get the HD video I need.

The OSO 35mm Mini PDB made it simple to install a Micro MinimOSD, along with both 5V & 12V pololus in a very compact layout.

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..
