Wanted to try a Plus configuration out. I decided to get the Tomoquads Trident frame, because of the way the camera is mounted higher up, then on other plus frames.
This keeps the front propeller out of view of the camera.
So when it came in, I gave it a dash of purple. Initially I went for white 3D printed accessoires, but changed my mind and ordered green ones. I also spray-painted the Foxeer Arrow green.
It takes 2.5" props and flies awesome. The way it handles in the cornes and the fast yaw distinguishes it from a regular quad.
After flying a plus, you won't give it a minus.

I use spray paint on the bottom of the plates. Tape the other side of the plates and cut the tape along the edges.
Just make sure you spray in the holes, so the edges off the openings get covered.
Then when you remove the tape it looks like this and the bottom side is purple.

Thanks for the tip! btw- checkout the lime green caddx sdr1. Its 1200 tvl and has a great picture, and features, plus it matches your color scheme. Personally its one of my favorites. It's also lighter than most micro cams by about a gram which is a nice bonus

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..
