Grüezi,

do you already have it in your hands? I am toying with the idea of getting this one as well.

Hoi *g,

Just finished the wiring. Everything works (at least on the bench), even the LED bar and buzzer via KISS FC. I'm still pretty happy with it! :-D Have fun!

Hey guys sorry for not posting photos I've gotten all the parts but have just been having horrible migraines and as a result have not been able to do much.

Hey, check my RUSH155. It is just under 250g with a 650mAh 4S 75c. I also use a 850mAh but it goes up to 280g.... I'm looking at some weight reductions by using the new Runcam Swift Micro (pre-ordered. It is 5.6g instead of 13g with the current RG 1200TVL) and switching the FX799T VTx + DYS 4 lobes SMA antenna with a Tramp HV or the TBS Unify Pro Race and a uFl CP antenna (probably half the weight).

Just wondering what you think about the Tramp HV? Is it better than the TBS Unify Pro Race?

Hey there will definately check out your build. I finished my japalura and will post photos. It ends up being 250g on the dot with a 4s 650mah lipo as well. I used a pagoda and made it slightly longer than 30mm and the antenna weighs around 6g and the tramp hv weighs 8g. So if you switch to a dipole you're saving 10g of weight right there (I'll probably go this way) tv swift weighs in at 10g but if the frame isn't designed for the micro adapters will make the camera a bit heavier than a normal swift. So I decided to run with the swift 2 as I also listen to my motors when flying. I used to fly with a unify but then started having random blackouts. I switched everything to a tramp hv and have never had a single problem since. The best part is it works with kiss telemetry I can change my vtx output from 1-600mw by putting it on a pot. Will never go tbs again for vtx's I get the tramp at a cheaper price, immersion rc support is awesome if a reseller does not help as much as you want where my experience with tbs has always been a major let down. Sorry for the long paragraph hope this helped.

I got those stores added so the prices can be normalized into USD. At least now the total price should be accurate.

Good news, I'll remove my comment about AUD.

nice man! been thinking about these little dinky 2 inch quads. did you see Zlex Zvada's gremlin frame? its a FREAKIN 2 INCH ALIEN! its so cute

BQE   5 hours ago 

I haven't seen that one. did a quick search but came up empty.

Whiffles commented on a Build, BQE Pixel   8 hours ago  

Interesting way to pass the motor wires around the standoffs. Is there a functional purpose to that? Great looking build BTW! Have you tried 3" props on it?

BQE   5 hours ago 

I do that so the motors have a little extra wire to work with when disassembling, and so if I do screw up a motor wire, I always have a second chance to recut and solder shorter. a motor with a wire that is 3mm too short is junk... so I err on the side of caution with these little ones.

It also makes it less likely to tear off the solder pad in a prop strike situation.

I have the "lite" version of this frame and it's next in line for the workbench (apart from repairs). I'm really impressed with the quality of this frame. The machining looks good, the screw holes are the right sizes and the carbon is super stiff. I'm really looking forward to this build but I'm sure it won't be as neat as yours.

Whiffles   6 hours ago 

It's a really neat frame. I really like the look of it and this was the smoothest, most trouble-free build I've done to date.

Yeah I thought for a long time trying to think of an actual clever pun. In the end I couldn't come up with anything so I decided to got meta.

Whiffles commented on a Build, Hex Pun   9 hours ago  

Wow, I haven't seen Goodluckbuy since my AP days playing with gimbals. What sort of flight times are you getting? How about some more photos? That photo is a little fuzzy.

Welcome to the site! I hope the site test went smooth! Yeah, GLB has never been competitive in terms of price, but they've always offered decent support.

Yup everything worked better than expected, I think I'm going to like it here.

Whiffles commented on a Build, Black Killer   7 hours ago  

Interesting RX antenna placement. I normally run them from behind the front arms, so this is the first time I've seen them going forward from the rear arms.

You're going to need a lot of storage space for all of this. Have you considered a smaller quad like a micro brushless?

NoveFpv commented on a Build, Saow's XLR-3   12 hours ago  

That is a cool looking frame! How thick is the carbon?

Saow   11 hours ago 

Yes I'm loving it so far. The lower plate is 3mm, seems really durable.

beo1329 commented on a Build, TBS DISCOVERY 3-axis   20 hours ago  

I bought the same gimbal without seeing this thread. How did you mount it to the frame? I have it without the stock suspension on the TBS loveseat using two zip ties. Please share your way of mounting it. Thanks.

Whiffles commented on a Build, 210 FPV Quad   1 day ago  

If it were me I'd use a 4-in-1 30A ESC with a 5v regulator and the Racerstar 2300kv motors. It'll make the build much easier and the motors are cheaper and proven. Then if you want to save a little money and weight you can use the VTX03 as your video transmitter. You won't need to buy an antenna as the dipole is perfectly fine. If you don't need radio telemetry just use the Frsky XM+. It's much smaller and cheaper. You can use the OSD for voltage and field PID configuration.

The 4-in-1 is more expensive, could I use these (or RS30A lite) ESC's, the Omnibus F4 V2 and swap this PDB for a cheap one?

Whiffles   1 day ago 

It's not more expensive when you subtract the cost of the PDB. You'd actually save money and about 16 solder joints.

Whiffles commented on a Build, Frog Lite   1 day ago  

That's a neat little frame. Just be sure to have a variety of standoffs available to get the stack height just right.

i really dont understand my obsession with tiny x drones with camera on the stacks. their adorable yet kick ass at the same time

Whiffles commented on a Build, RaceFlight One Chimp   1 day ago  

I'd put the Taranis under Misc so it's not included in the base price. You've got it in for the VTX.

YamiFlys   1 day ago 

Fixed, thank you! I was wondering why it looked so expensive...

Whiffles   1 day ago 

Oh it's always more expensive than it looks ;)
