    Has anyone connected Summit 1/10th to DJI FPV Air Unit?

    Iím exploring feasibility of using DJI FPV Air Unit and camera with the 1/10th scale Summit (which I am considering). Anyone here done or researched this?

    Does the Summitís included TQi 2.4 radio support Betaflight?

    I've been looking into it, but it's so new the only info coming out is from drone reviewers.

    I do have the Ocusync system which will work but only for video, not for control. I haven't hooked it up to anything yet.

    It sounds like a great idea but the DJI fpv setup is expensive! I use quality 5.8 antenna 800mw rc lots of power! Diversity with a directional antenna. My setup works great I have gone through culverts under the road several times! Fun fpv

    Has anyone 3D printed a stout platform base to mount a camera pan/tilt apparatus?

    This truck is sooo popular no one has made one to sell?

    For anyone looking for this - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4567729 - and - https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4590601 should get you started. I've got it working on my TRX4 (using other parts I made).

    They are expensive and as far as I can tell, there are no telemetry data likely due to lack of GPS?

    I have the DJI Phantom 4 and I know how remarkably great the video FPV feed is even as I fly it over the mountain and drop it down to the forest floor. I wasn't sure how this would translate when it is on the ground so as proof of concept, I mounted it on my Summit.



    I left my smartphone on the DJI controller in my garage and followed it around in the forest and behind the mountain up to about 170 feet as shown in the telemetry. As you can see, there was no breakup in the video feed at all and is in full HD.

    Because of the cost and lack of telemetry, I am considering a Mavic Air 2 because it looks like it is small enough (unfolded) and is about the cost of the DJI FPV setup. The Mavic Mini is tinier but I am not sure it's wifi would be as effective.
