My buddy Sky has been flying this awesome weird Z frame that actually makes a ton of sense because it offers tons of clean air to your props and naturally wants to go forward. Now that I have the hang of flying I decided to build one, and man does this thing fly on rails!!! The more camera tilt the better it will fly on its own. This is not a beginner build as in my opinion it needs more than 35 degrees of camera tilt, it's also a slightly tricky build but ton of fun on the track.

This frame comes in 4mm and 5mm versions and is tough as nails!
I also wanna thank Andy for his pod design!!! It's up on thingyverse.

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..
