Red'n'Green FlosStyle

This is my try at the new and popular Flosstyle by Kabapfpv. The frame is of great quality and despite being quite low in height and therefore tighter than most other freestyle frames, it facilitates a very clean build when choosing the right components. The overall design of the frame is very clever and makes the build process rather easy. Since there is no Foxeer Box mount in the style of the popular Brain3D mounts, I designed one and it works out quite well. All credit here goes to the folks over at Brain3D, who gave me their blessing to publish the 3D-Design.

hi there, do you happen to k ow where I could get two of these foxeer box cam mounts? just got two 6" flosstyle frames and I've found a print file for one but don't have or no anyone with a printer. does any of the FPV sites sell one that you know of?

thanks for your help, appreciate your time.

Hi,
it's good to hear that you like my mount. Depending on where you live you can try a commercial printing service such as brain3d or phx-3d.com or a community services like 3dhubs. Just let it be printed in TPU with at least 50% infill.

i could also ship you the one. PM me if interested.

able to post more pics of your fc wiring.

in about a week, I will be. But you can ask her what you need to know.

How do you like the OmniXNT F7? Waiting for mine to come in the mail.

q-ratz   Jun 20, 2018 

So far it has been working perfectly. I really like the pinlayout and the softmounted gyro, which enables me to mount the board hard and very tight. right now I'm running bf3.4 0rc1 in 32/16k, which feels smooth while the CPU is running at about 20% load. unfortunately, there still is an F7-related bug in 3.4.0 which makes the CPU run at 100% when switching the pid loop to 32k.

Thanks man.
I will be building mine soon, so I may have some questions for you. Stay in touch.

q-ratz   Jun 20, 2018 

Sure, man. Glad to help.

how are those dragone fly motors?

q-ratz   May 25, 2018 

so far I've only had time to put round about 15 packs through them. very good top and bottom end so far. very much comparable to the brotherhobby r3 2207. However the brotherhobby look nicer and are really durable.  So far I haven't had any hard crashes, so I can't really argue about durability here.

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..

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..
