Functionality? What quadcopter functions are missing?
You could spend time flying your FPV or spend time building.
Building is fun.
I understand your point, but for $200, i can have a powerful direct drive brushless drone, with a higher quality, and a higher frame rate camera that has no latency issues. Additionally my range will be at least 3000ft with this setup. Plus i get GPS way point navigation, direction and high altitude hold. As well as accelerometer functionality for a perfectly stable platform. Additionally i need a greater payload capacity for a Digital SLR. There are just more features and capability to be had when you DIY. And i love the building aspect more than the flying
