FleXin' On Them

Flex RC came out with a 2.5 inch ultra lightweight frame. I can't wait to try it.

4/25/18 - At 10.5g this is one of the lightest frames available in any brushless size. The frame is in stock and shipping at FlexRC.com

I have the Omnibus in hand, the Wave 4in1 is a direct connection to the Nano with an 8 pin connector. 2DogRC is going out of business and had it on sale for $18.99

Motors ordered.

Camera, VTX, props, and battery ordered.

04/30/18 - The camera, props, and battery arrived. The VTX was the wrong size. I tried assembling the frame but there are 2 feet notches at the rear that don't seem to fit in place easily. I think a slight filing of the area will allow it to fit better. The frame came with lots of standoffs and screws. It's larger in footprint than you'd expect from pictures.

05/01/18 - I took a file to the rear of the roll cage hooks where they meet the baseplate. It's hard to describe the area but if you buy this frame you may need to give it about 20 file strokes for those rear hooks to slide into place easily. Snug but not impossible/breaking point. All parts are in except the TPU protection cover. My buddy is printing in a Chartreuse TPU.

How are those 3B-R motors? Do they get hot on 3s?
I ordered the 6000kV's to be save

Insanely powerful and smooth. Would buy again.

Which Caddx is that? Looks like you've got a Foxeer listed.

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..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
