Our latest attempt indoor/outdoor perfection. This frame uses our unique 3D geometry to stay incredibly stiff and provide 360deg protection at an incredible 7.5g of weight. The design is built around the best ultralight electronics on the market, and is surprisingly easy to build for its size. The fishpepper fc + esc stack and vm275t can be fully assembled on the bench before being hooked into place using an innovative soft mounting system. There's also an improved battery strap and a ziptie stress relief location for power leads. Built to spec, the HoverBot Vibe weighs 32g dry while swinging 2" props on 1103 motors. Believe me - on 2s, this little monster absolutely scoots. Thrust to weight ratio of about 7:1 as shown.

Also please let me know more about those 1103, I think they would work great on my Modulus 65 as well! The 1102 seem to be the sweet spot now but I wanna hear some specs on those!

Good idea with the prop direction - that'll save me a fair amount of lens cleaning. The motors are of my design and manufactured by BrotherHobby - they'll be in stock on hoverbot.io on 6/30. N52 arc magnets, dynamic balance, NSK bearings, 3.9g per motor.

WHAAAAA so over all I would gain 1.2g over the DYS 1102?! That is insane man, I definitely wanna try these out sometime!

And yeah, reversed props means less lens cleaning and fewer crashes. Instead pf getting sucked into something, you bounce off. Saved me from a 30ft tree disaster last week.

FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..

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..
