iFlight Nazgul5 Quad with the DJI Digital FPV System - Part 1

The iFlight Nazgul5 was our first 6s quad build, and it flew so well that we knew we had to install the new DJI Digital FPV system onto it as soon as it was released. Several people have asked us how we fitted the new system into the frame. So here is a quick summery of the steps we took to fit the new FPV system into the Nazgul5.

Nazgul5 DJI FPV System Install - What you will need

Here is a list of all the parts we used in our own build. This is not the only way to do so you can customize the parts as you see fit. But everything we chose we did with the Nazgul5 frame in mind. As well as setup time which we wanted to keep as quick as possible.

Nazgul5 4s or 6s:-

You can select either the 4s or 6s version of the Nazgul5 build at the link above. We used the 6s version and each of the following parts was selected with that in-mind.

The DJI Digital FPV System:-

DJI Digital FPV Elbow SMA Cables x2:-

FC & ESC Stack:-

The stack is the Holybro Kakute F7 HDV FC and the Tekko32 F3 HDV 40A ESC. This is pretty much plug and play into the DJI System. Just solder the motors onto the ESC and that's it for soldering. Plug the FC into the ESC and the Air Unit with the supplied connections and you are done.

Long-range Antennas(LHCP) x2:-

6s Battery:-

Motors x4:-

You may notice in the pictures below that we swapped out the stock Nazgul5 XING-E 2207 1700KV motors for the RDQ Bad ass 2205.5 1700Kv motors. For no other reason than an out-of-stock issue after a crash. The stock motors will work just fine. But if you want the exact setup we have, then the link above will take you directly to the Race Day Quads website.


The DJI FPV system will not fit into the frame as it comes as standard. So, we had to raise the frame up in order to fit everything in. And we had to use a few spacers(20mm) to mount around the camera and into the 3D printed parts in some sort of a roll-cage protection. ;)

You can move around a few of the standoffs that are already on the Nazgul frame, but you will need some extra anyway, which never hurts.

Here are the sizes you will need.

40mm x 4 - Front and back ends of frame

30mm x 4 - Inset and close to FC stack

20mm x 3 - Camera Mount

NAZGUL5 DJI FPV Digital System Install - The Frame

First Step:

The first thing to do is to strip the frame down and remove all the parts except the stock motors, unless you want to use a different set of course.  


As you can see in the image above, we had to 3D print a couple of parts to house the camera and the antennas of the DJI system. We also printed a bay for the Air unit which you can see below. Both the camera and sma antenna mount are mounted on the 40mm standoffs. Use your 20mm x3 standoffs for around the camera protection mount.

{Quick-tip} Mount the Air unit antennas into the 3D part before you install it onto the frame.

Here are the links to the 3D printed Parts. If you have a 3d printer you can of course print them from home. However, for those of you without a printer will have to use a printing service who will do most of work for you. High Line Drones can print parts for you upon request. Just get in contact with us for prices and shipping times.

Thingyverse 3D Printed Parts:

Air Unit Bay & SMA Antenna back mount:-

Camera "roll-cage" Mount:-


That's part one wrapped up! Now you have time to gather all the gear, printed parts, and tools. When you have everything together, come back and continue on with Part 2 which will lead you in to putting everything together and finishing your Nazgul5 DJI FPV Build.

I ordered a nazgul5 hd. I already have DJI fpv. Will the fpv controller bind with my nazgul5 or is it only the original DJI controller that will work?
