Pirx Seven vs DJI FPV

Pirx Seven 7-inch FPV frame

I designed the Pirx Seven 7-inch FPV frame when the DJI Digital FPV System was something as a novelty. Truth to be told, back then I have not believed it will so popular as it is today. Turned out, I was wrong on that and the DJI Digital FPV System is incredibly popular. Luckily, the Pirx Seven turned out to be future-proof and it accepts both DJI Airt Unit and Caddx Vista without much effort.

The Pirx Seven allows you to:

  • Install Caddx Vista in the front section, right behind the FPV camera
  • Install Caddx Vista in the center section upside-down under the top plate
  • Install Caddx Vista in the rear section with a longer, 14cm coax wire
  • Install the DJI Air Unit in the center section upside-down under the top plate

For details on the Air Unit setup, please see the video below

Do you know this old saying “If you want something done right, do it yourself”? I do and sometimes I just live according to it. Not always, I’m not crazy, but at least from time to time!

I fly 7-inch FPV drones a lot. To be honest, they are my favorite flying devices. There are a few good 7-inch frames, like TBS Source One for example. There is a difference between good and great tho. I do think that Source One is a good frame, there are a lot of things on it that do not make me very happy tho! The list might not be very long, but it is relevant:

  • props in the view
  • limited space to install split-like hybrid cameras
  • no very convinient place to install VTX
  • it’s not that big inside as one might imagine…
