The nicest frame I've ever come accross. I chose this frame in particular to be my first 5" build. I love the low profile look combined with the high gloss premium carbon and the heated titanium screws.

FC & ESC
I went with the Hobbywing 45a, 6s capable stack. I've read nothing but amazing reviews. Very easy to install, just plugging in the ESC to the FC. This stack uses a plug for the vtx, so I had to splice with the connector Hobbywing provides.

Motors
I decided to go with the LS2207 2550kv by Emax. I was trying to find a balance between efficiency and power. Hopefully these motors will provide just that. Plus they look badass.

FPV
I went with the very reliable TBS Unify Pro for the vtx. For the camera I decided to use the Foxeer Predator Mini. I stumbled upon it and really liked how it looked.

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..
