Lightweight for range/duration. Too delicate for anything crazy, but I've done some longer distances without worry.

It made some nice long laps of my nearby field before cracking. I repaired it but another arm cracked right at the motor. Too thin a frame for my derpy flying. The guts are going back on the slightly smaller, thicker(1.5mm) x frame.

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..
