The GPS and VTX antenna mount are a work in progress, not sure how I want to do that just yet. I'd also like to get the Immortal T antenna mounted vertically.

Motors are pretty high KV for the application but I already had them. May have to replace them in the future.

Last pic is a size comparison between the 7" and a 2".

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..
