I wanted a super light, fun, and powerfull, 2" 16x16 drone that I could literally fly everywhere.. This is the result!

The frame is a custom designed 2" Vosair Sinew, tribute to the Sinew series by Jeremy Allen. Great frames that fly amazing and have great details on them.

68g total with battery included! Only accepts 2S batteries.

How durable have you found this frame to be?

The frame is fine, the problem was the durability of the electronics. I have since found better electronics and plan to rebuild it as soon as I get a chance.

For batteries, I was using 450-550mAh 2S lipos, with which I would get slightly over 3min flight times and plenty of power. With the rebuild I would like to up that to 3S or 4S, and probably reduce the capacity slightly to maintain a similar weight.

are you thinking one of the new 4s 16x16 stacks from iflight and diatone?

Yeap, that looks like the way to go, hopefully. I burned a couple of the original ESCs I used.

How are you liking those AOKFLY motors? The reviews on their larger 2XXX motors are generally pretty good, but I've had a hard time finding anything on their 11XX series. From their own published thrust charts, they look promising, even in 2s.

I like them a lot actually. Bought them out of amazon. So far so good! I only run them in 2S, but plenty of power for what they are. This setup is definitely more powerful than any tiny whoop I've tried.

Even though the two inchers will technically fly without the propeller screws, I always put them in now because they serve as structual integrity for the motor shaft. If you hit the prop hard without the screws in place, the motor shaft can get bent.

I actually fly with them on because these props have so much thrust that they eventually fly away otherwise.

Nice. Where can I get that frame?
Looks ubercool

The 4 and 5" frames are made by vosair and they sell them in their website. This 2" is custom, I had it cut by Armattan Productions. I can temporarily make it public at cost if you are interested in grabbing one. It comes to be around $13 including shipping, plus the hardware.

Really? I want one then.

Love the style, and your hot glue cam mount makes me feel better about mine that I have been too ashamed of to post

I use it all the time! Sometimes it's nice to just work with your hands instead of designing in the computer.

Glad you liked the style as well. It's a blast to fly!

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..

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..
