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 Rotor Riot CL1 is a community collaborated design based loosely on the popular ImpulseRC Alien and the Martian II. It's a low-budget freestyle frame with thick 5mm x 20mm arms, so it should take quite a beating. Additionally it provides 20mm mounting in the rear for a VTX which is a nice touch. It's very easy to build and perfect for a first build. The parts I chose for this build are a balance..

The EV200D is Eachine's long awaited follow-up to their budget oriented EV100. These offer a much larger 42 degree field of view (FOV) on 16:9 720p LCoS displays. This is the second goggle to utilize the LCoS technology behind the failed Topsky F7X. Traditionally FPV goggles use LCD displays, so LCoS is unproven, but Eachine did a great job implementing the technology. Features DVR HDMI input 42..
