I have 3-4 years of flying dji gps drones, mavic pro mainly...& line of sight entry brushless like the mjx bugs 6 & 8pro. No fpv outside of using my dji RE goggles with my mavic pro.
I so have the ocusync air fpv kit that allows you to install dji fpv systems in race quads or anything u want really but from what I read it has too much latency for real crisp fpv flying so I am going to get fatsharks to mate up to this quad once it is built instead of even attempt to use it here
Right now I am doing forum research, studying other posted builds and came to the conclusion it might be best for me to just copy someones build. Because literally I have just the very basic knowledge of how it all goes together with no hands on experience.
Ifear i will buy parts that i will wish i had not. Either compatibility limitations/issues to getting a lesser quality part than i could have, etc
Would you review what I am doing here and add your input. Anything at all from what transmitter makes sense for this setup and especially places i do not need to spend tons of cash being its my first one. Parts ill need or dont want to forget. Compatibility tips.
im afraid to buy anything more than this until i know what I am doing.
3Dpower full kit w/ go pro mounts, tba antenna mounts, etc
GoPro Session 5
Also i have a ‘runcam niteowl ver2 or 3 that was like 100$ back when it was new but i noticed so many newer runcam models have been released since then. Not sure its relevant for this build. Like the immersion rc 600mw video tx i bought with the run cam a year back when i was going to build fpv rc trucks. It seems the heli world has gone to mini and stackable hardware
Oh ya , my goal is to build something thats just fun to learn fpv on in steps. At first, simply cruising around in fpv to later on doing the simple proximity type flying and then eventually learn to incorporate freestyle moves into film technique flying for those unique shots you can really only get from one of these custom beasts. Highspeed film rig if you will. Its Another type of action video shot to help make great movies even better. Im excited to learn this
Just a couple comments from someone who has a lot of build experience. Those are all quality parts and compatible BUT whenever a product puts a professional pilots name it, it's way overpriced. Firstly the JohnnyFPV frame should be 60 or 70 dollars, not $130. I'm a Flynoceros guy and my suggestion for you would be the new Tank Racer 2. Same style of frame and basically indestructible. Comes with a lifetime warranty, and the service from Neil and the guys at Flyno is second to none. Half the price of the AstroX frame and being your first race quad, you're going to have lots of crashes and breakage. https://theflynoshop.com/product/tank-racer-2/#configuration
