here is my latest build....a bit tricky: I want to show the engine DALRC....it's a really beautiful 4in1 ESC.... and buried in the bottom of the stack is jut a crime!! so i decided to put it on top! follow by the VTX....and the FC.

The FC is the Joshua Bardwell's one...and it's very nice and easy to solder.

I'm a big fan of the 4-1 DALRC ESC. Great job in showing it off

What would need to change if I wanted to fly this 4s? Sorry for the novice question but I really beleive this will be my first build. I think it will suit my needs. But I have a large number of 4s batteries already and would like to stay flying them for now. Really nice clean build. Cant wait to see it fly.

Pimpmykwad   Jun 10, 2018 

Hi Raptor, no need to change!!! when you can fly 5S...you can fly 4S, 3S, etc..... This setup accept all the batteries up to 5S. But you can use less powerful batteries like 4S without trouble! I will post the build video (in english...) this could help you if it's your first build because it's not the easiest one! There are a lot of features on the Jb FC....so you have to know what you're doing! ;-)

Let me know when you post a video of it flying on your YouTube channel too and thank you so much for your reply.

That's a pretty way to build it with that ESC, but that quad itself is right-side up!

Pimpmykwad   May 31, 2018 

yep!!! this frame is cheap and damn good! ;-) Perghaps the others frame are overpriced..... ^_^

How'd you wire up the Bardwell F4 and the Engine? I'm looking to do the same thing but feel like I'm gonna spark something.

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..

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..
