Hello Folks,
I love this frame so much I decided to make a mid range low cost free style build. Sadly I do not have rolling plains or super large areas to really get out there for range, but for the increased flight times with what I have it should be great.
The motors are new and have very limited data @ the time of this post to go off of, but for the price I couldnt beat it. Going to try both 4S 1500 / 4S 1800 lipos to see what yields me the best results. Might even try a 4S 2200mah to see if the weight want be an issue. Amps draw should be low with 4S, but I have the option for going 5S in the future if im feeling frisky!! Any thoughts shoot them my way and thanks!!
Cheers and thanks for checking out my latest build and happy flying!!!

why bottom mount, and if bottom mount why not run antennas out the top?

I feel that the CG is better for the way I fly and for the antennas I'm just trying for better diversity since my new DX6 G3 supports it better then my DX8 Gen 1

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..
