With the new release of the Flycat 4 FPV quadcopter, I figured it will be cool to do a build log trying to create the most cost effective and easy to build FPV setup.
The parts list here is just an idea of what things will be usefull for this setup.
Flycat 4 FPV Quadcopter - a nice compact frame designed for FPV with a built in gimbal.
MT2213 Motors - the have a slightly higher KV rating which should make them more responsive for agressive FPV flying, and also nice that they come with 10x45 props!
4in1 20A ESC - for ease of connecting everything together its nice to have a ESC/PDB all built into one!
FY-41AP Autopilot - this was chosen as its very small, and comes with built in OSD which is great for FPV (although personally I dont always like having an OSD)
FPV Gear For the FPV gear I will go with the 25mw TX, with a simple FPV camera along with a receiver with build in monitor on the ground.
The other option for FPV gear is to use the gorpo camera video feed instead of the FPV camera and use this cable between the GoPro 3 camera and transmitter.
Gimbal ServosFor the gimbal, I will be using the FT4321M servo for roll, and the FT2331M servo for pitch. I am using these servos as they are high speed so should provide great levels of stabilisation compared to some of the cheaper servos.
Batteries - For the flight battery I will be using a 4s 4000mah flight battery as the 4s provides extra power and the 4000mah will provide enough juice for decent flight durations.
So thats the basic setup for this FPV quad. If I forgot any parts I will add them above, and also post some progress when I get all the parts and start with build! If you have any comments or suggestions please let me know!
