Update: After a few flights and some experimentation, I've changed to Gemfan 2540 3 blade props. They make this little build rock and fit the frame much better. Only added 2g to the total weight but the thrust and pull increase more than makes up for it.

Just finished and so far no problems. It was easy to build and just fell in place, except for the buzzer. What to do with the buzzer...? Running Betaflight 3.2.2, DSHOT 600 and IBUS. Too bad this camera has no video in/out since the FC has an OSD but I'm unable to use it. Might have to remedy that in the future.

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..
