The FPV-AF group is an advocate of inexpensive quad parts and builds and its primary focus is finding the most performance per dollar. This helps the average guy access the full joy of modern FPV flight and leaves us all better off. After 4 yrs and >100 builds, FPV-AF has confirmed that many inexpensive frames are indeed garbage, but also found that some inexpensive frames outperform their premium counterparts. Why pay $100 for a frame when you can get the same performance for $20? Why pay $30 for a motor when a $15 motor is just as good? The FPV-AF group has distilled its knowledge by creating high performing but value conscious analog and digital builds.
