why did you choose the 2300kv version?

e_z_chee_z   Apr 12, 2018 

What version would you have gotten? I was just going off a recommendation

Ruxys   Apr 12, 2018 

2700, but thats my opinion just because stew had those. idk whats better. looking at the hawk 5 seems like 2300kv motors are still good too

Was this the one that replaced the one that fell into a river? :)

e_z_chee_z   Mar 29, 2018 

Lol yup. I already broke the frame though. Turns out counter sinking your screws on 2mm carbon really creates a weak spot. So I transplanted all the parts to a uav 210

Wow, rought start to the hobby. At least you're persisting! Eventually you'll have a couple working quads to choose from ;)

how have the motors been so far. Some say that u cant trust the qc of these motors but i cant find a single incident of it on the internet

I havnt flown more than 50 packs but i think its all bullshit. people just like to brag about their expensive motors. although in this set they sent me a blank prop nut lol

You can't beat those for the $. Same reason I love my eachine ev800d goggles. Nobody can tell me fatshark is worth the $, unless you are worried about low profile looks. Not here. I'll take the money I saved and build another quad!

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..
