    Seems like all the flight controllers are out..any suggestions

  2. Colan McLaughlin on October 9, 2021 at 8:13 am

    Awesome vid. Is this still a good build in 2021 to attempt as a first build?

  3. ollieone051 on October 9, 2021 at 8:13 am

    This is not as intimidating to build as I thought it would be.

  4. Nine H on October 9, 2021 at 8:14 am

    Why did you reassign the escs by soldering to their outputs instead of switching outputs on the fc?

  5. AN OFFICIAL on October 9, 2021 at 8:16 am

    Where i can buy

  6. METEOR [5] on October 9, 2021 at 8:17 am

    Dude , this stuff are made for rich only 👍. Your channel deserves this 👍

  7. אלעד פיאלקוב on October 9, 2021 at 8:18 am

    "99$" IT 162$

  8. Amped and Volted on October 9, 2021 at 8:18 am

    This is some really solid info. Thumbs up! Question, can this work (link up) directly with a Devo 7 radio controller ? If not which module do I need to purchase?

  9. Mark dixon on October 9, 2021 at 8:18 am

    nice video

  10. Mrkrabs on October 9, 2021 at 8:19 am

    What do the wires coming out of the esc do?

  11. Ray Parker on October 9, 2021 at 8:19 am

    This video got me into the hobby!

  12. Adhavan .A on October 9, 2021 at 8:21 am

    lol 4 years later u get qwads for 79 dollars the have the same or better performance than this

  13. XLR EAGLE on October 9, 2021 at 8:22 am

    I am building this after 4 years…yes 4 years

  14. JOEL MICHAEL JR BEDUYA on October 9, 2021 at 8:23 am

    Why is there no battery included in the build?

  15. Bryson Michael RC on October 9, 2021 at 8:23 am

    Ohhhhh PDBs. Haha. Remember when all drones had PDBs? I remember running the Naze32 rev6 with a Matek PDB. I left fpv for like 3 years and before watching any new videos I went to build a new drone… bought a PDB and never used it haha. That’s one piece I’m glad fpv got rid of

  16. Graham Walkingshaw on October 9, 2021 at 8:26 am

    Need to get a fpv drone and setup

  18. F8aL Assassin on October 9, 2021 at 8:28 am

    Whats batteries should be use for this setup?

  19. rehepeks on October 9, 2021 at 8:30 am

    Why is it so important to have ESC connections in that order? Couldnt you just swap left side 3 and 4 motor output connections on the esc and then also swap input connections from flightcontroller?

  20. Rushikesh Bhalerao on October 9, 2021 at 8:32 am

    Pls give me one

  21. Dillon Gonsman on October 9, 2021 at 8:33 am

  22. Steven McLain on October 9, 2021 at 8:33 am

  23. Mert Gülçür on October 9, 2021 at 8:34 am

  24. Sachin hacker 2 on October 9, 2021 at 8:34 am

  25. Jake Colberg on October 9, 2021 at 8:35 am

  26. Howie Phuckterpusc on October 9, 2021 at 8:38 am

  27. auto_chris420 on October 9, 2021 at 8:39 am

    this has inspired me to not buy a dji and make my own i just crashed my phantom 3 adv into a bird or he flue into me either way this vid is helping me with sum expensive life choices

  28. Abdul Hameed on October 9, 2021 at 8:39 am

    Very well explained 👌. Appreciate your work. Stay blessed and keep growing.

  29. Gregory Dahl on October 9, 2021 at 8:40 am

    I did not notice a reciever . Did they have recievers back then ?
    Mine so old it had a plastic box from bedrock drone cave but i replaced it

  30. Manos Chainakis on October 9, 2021 at 8:41 am

    Hey, will you update "Built a fpv drone series" for 2021?

  31. Rubinski G. S. on October 9, 2021 at 8:43 am

    2021: it costs suddenly over 160$ lol….

  32. Chalkie FPV on October 9, 2021 at 8:46 am

    Awesome

  33. Titus Anderson on October 9, 2021 at 8:47 am

    Which battery do you recommend

  34. Lofi Boy on October 9, 2021 at 8:49 am

    I need the fc controller

  35. SyntrexFPV on October 9, 2021 at 8:54 am

    How does this build hold up in 2021?

  36. Codeuser 09 on October 9, 2021 at 8:55 am

    Sadly the price isn’t right and it costs more than advertised in the title and description. OK video thou

  37. David Holdman on October 9, 2021 at 8:56 am

    Awesome

  38. Northwest Connection on October 9, 2021 at 8:57 am

    Hey thanks for sharing your skills. Wishing you nothing but the best from the Pacific Northwest, USA.

  39. Dragon Theta on October 9, 2021 at 8:57 am

    What are the pads on the flight controller that he uses. I am using a different flight controller. What pads do I hook it up to

  40. Mike Brach on October 9, 2021 at 8:58 am

    I loved the video, except, you didn’t finish the quad. I have no idea what receiver to use nor do I know how to bind it to the transmitter. I have no idea where to put the receiver, nor do I know how to connect the receiver to the quad, Still very educational thank you.

    For me, if you would do a complete build from start to finish it would be much more helpful. The video production was fast efficient very solid.

  41. Sérgio Matos on October 9, 2021 at 8:59 am

    Hello! I’m new to this. I followed every step and it all seems pretty good until i try to bind the eachine VTX03 to my FlySky FS-I6X. Can anyone help or post a link with help on this binding?

  42. Useful Name on October 9, 2021 at 8:59 am

    Thank you for this video, I really thought this sport required having a tonne of money, awesome you’ve showed it can be affordable, I’ll certainly be saving towards this!

  43. Jason Brown on October 9, 2021 at 9:01 am

    Where’d you get the screws to mount the upgrade camera? I’m trying to mount it but i cant find any screws for it. What size screws are they?

  44. Ryhan Akthar Khan on October 9, 2021 at 9:03 am

    How do I connect the controller and FPV goggles to my drone the pro version that I built in the video

  45. Johnny Tindel on October 9, 2021 at 9:04 am

    Love it. I want to get into this

  46. the johnjosh on October 9, 2021 at 9:05 am

    Ahhh yes, the video that got me in to FPV. I just wanted to say thanks Stu for this video. Here I am 2021 and looking to make a career operating SUAS.

  47. Dillon Gonsman on October 9, 2021 at 9:06 am

    I did the math and this stuff roughfly adds up to 146 dollars in usa money. Maybe stuff in austraill cost less?

  48. Alfredo on October 9, 2021 at 9:06 am

    for me the normal version was not even close to 99$ i calculated it and it all cost 150$ so.

  49. UAVfutures on October 9, 2021 at 9:07 am
