Built around the BMC3D Extruder frame, this quad's weight and size makes an ideal build for the ultimate all around quad. Having it top mount with an HD cam and still having a compact size is another plus for me. The design features make this frame a pleasure to build. Having press nuts on the bottom plate means less hardware to worry about and a much shorter height. Being able to have a stack that is 3 tall and still have a neat and compact build is a plus for me. AUW with HD cam and 5s 1300 lipo only comes out to 612g. Thats a very reasonable weight to have while flying fully loaded on this rig.

very clean buid!!! it seems you have an amazing collection.. :)
I'm looking forward we could one day get rid of those ridiculously huge Gopro cameras :D Your beautiful builds don't deserve that :)

you and me both . i wish runcam would hurry up with their solution. As of right now, i did smash that gopro session along with a 5s battery during a bad powerloop into the concrete. luckily, i had the bestbuy warranty but they could only replace it with a hero 5 black which is 40g heavier and is as ugly as sin.

So how come you're not worried about your FC breaking if you chuck a battery?

You mean like ripping off the pig tail from the 4 in 1? If that's what you mean then yea I kinda do worry about it, I might add a zip tie for strain relief to take some of the stress if the battery gets chucked out.

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..
