If you want to save a little money you might want to buy the Pixhawk lite from Goodluckbuy.

I have a couple on the way, one from this seller. I´ll test and post feedback soon as I can.

apm is a great FC at a great price. I am looking to take a step up with the FC in this build. very true about the encoder. the chinese super happy fun time combo deal I posted has one.

I am not familiar with that seller on aliexpress so I hope the quality is good. at that price I am really thinking about making a fun knock around flier out of spare parts.

I just changed it to US warehouse. I'll trade $2 for 2 weeks any day.

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..
