I am building this to be a mid-weight 4-inch ripper and to have slightly longer flight times and strong video for some medium range flying on a small scale

Its taken a few atempts and a fire but I am finally happy with this build. I might print out a smaller pod for a runcam mini but this will do for now have test hovered it and just need to wait for the weather to clear for some proper flights

I also do need to order a new lens this one is cracked but I can see perfectly fine

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..
