Heres a pic of my latest setup. It's taken me a while to get everything set up right especially starting from no RC knowledge or experience. I'd like to get into fpv soon.

This is my DJI F550/XAircraft hybrid with a few tweaks here and there.
I cut and shaved off the front landing gear pieces so they wouldn't be in sight of the camera.

IMO, the xaircraft landing gear is the best landing gear for the f550. It fits flush underneath. I've tried the other landing gear for the f550 and it just doesn't work right. Some require so much drilling and prep work therefore not making the landing gear not specially designed for the f550; and some just look ugly!

The xaircraft landing gear was cheaper too and super easy to put together!

If anyone is interested in getting a setup like this I would be more than happy to help out and answer any questions.
