Project Venom based on AstroX - very strong and lightweigh frame. With new canopy it looks very good! RunCam Micro Eagle didn't fit becouse of big lens, had to adjust canopy by myself. T-Motor F60II Pro 2600kv are great! EMAX Avan Flow looks good on this build. Installed 3d printered TBS VTX mount, UNIFY PRO HV and Lumenier AXII Stubby antenna. Skitzo Bolt32 and Skitzo RevoltOSD finally arived, finished this build. LEDs are very bright and looks nice with "Larson scanner" option.

Replaced camera - installed new RunCam Micro Eagle Lumenier Edition (White)! Big thanks to Sergio from Pyro Drone (https://pirofliprc.com)!!!! Best customer service worldwide - he helped me to get this cam! Looks awesome!

Upgraded motors - installed new T-Motor F80 Pro 1900kv and replaced 2000muf 25v capacitor for a two 1000muf 35v. Now this build fully support 6s batteries.

Hey there, I just built a simillar quad using DJI. I feel like im not getting the most out of the F80 Pro 1900Kv motors though. I can only fit 5.1/x props on my quad so I'm literally running the highest pitch 5.1" props I can find. Are you running into a simllar issue? I feel like these could handle a 6" props easily.

Hi, i prefer Emax AVAN Flow 5 Inch 5x4.3x3 for all my builds. They are best imho

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..

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..
