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.

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..
