So I decided a few months ago that instead of building another racing quad, I would try and build a fixed wing FPV model (cause i liked the idea of having flight times longer than 3 minutes ). I also quite liked the idea of using Inav as it would give me GPS flight modes and an OSD with a $20 flight controller and a $15 GPS module (waaaaaay cheaper than using an EagleTree Vector or a Pixhawk and a bit more up to date than a APM board).

For the airframe I will be using a Bixler 2 cause its cheap and im familiar with it.

Requirements:
FPV capable
Headtracking for the FPV camera
On Screen Display (OSD)
GPS flight modes e.g. return to home
20 minute+ flight times
Not super huge and expensive
