New 3" Micro Quad build with some lighter parts than the heavier 14xx and 15xx setups. Flies amazing on a stock butterflight tune, but there is still some propwash that could be tuned out. I really like this TomoQuads frame. Very simple design, bears some similarities to something like the Hyperlite Tooth Fairy. The Kamikaze comes with some 3D printed parts which are very nice and the carbon seems top notch. These 1304 RCX motors seem solid, but they are getting warm on 4S with these 3" props. Not sure if I can do anything about that or not, but I'm really enjoying the way it flies right now. Easily my best flying micro to date. Need some better spaces to fly this guy in besides my yard and neighborhood!

I really like the Monster Micro Pro, but my ultimate goal with this build is to try to squeeze in a runcam split mini. Will likely be updating this build and page as I go.

great build! I think these motors perform great even on 3s, if you still want to run 4s you could limit your max throttle to say 85-90% to reduce the heat a little

Good call I was actually thinking about that! I actually don't have any 3S batteries yet, but I'd like to try on 3S as well as the reduced max throttle thing too. I think I can just do that on my radio....

The Aomway Commander V2s are the 2018 followup to the successful Aomway Commander V1 FPV headset. Unlike their predecessor, which targeted the FatShark Dominator V3s, the Commander V2s have set their sights higher toward the FatShark HD3s. Instead of 16:9 displays with a 32 degree field of view (FOV) the V2s now sport 4:3 displays with an impressive 45 degree FOV. And unlike the HD3s, these switch..

The FB 009 is a lightweight and compact budget FPV headset. When I first saw this I thought it might be worth a try. I'm never quite sure which headset to recommend at this price point, so let's see how this stands up. Most notably it includes a USB chargeable 1S 1200mah battery which is a decent capacity for an internal battery. The headset is compact and features a 3" 480x320 16:9 display. The..
