RVS Dutchman by Rotor Village. A 2.5" racing frame. It's 77g dry, and 118g using my battery of choice, a 450mah 3S. It's fast and flies really stable. The jump from 2" to 2.5" was surprisingly a big one and this frame doesn't disapoint. Also available is a 3mm base plate for added durability.

Hey man Im about to start a build on this frame and I was wondering if you went with the 6000kv or the 7500kv option for 2.5" props... Ive only built 2" micros in the past so im not sure what i need for KV... Any info appreciated. Awesome build man, cheers

Hey there. Sorry for the delayed reply. But I’ve actually ran both on the 2.5”. The 6000kv hglrc motors were great. Just a bit more tame than these. I run 3S as well. If you run 2S, definitely go for the 7500. If 3S then get whatever suits your flying style. Bat out of hell top speed or a bit more tame but still plenty of power. 2”-2.5” is a bit jump. I’ll never go back to 2”.

For the last couple years the only micro Ive been running is a 2 inch with 7500kv motors running on 3s. I had to tune for like a month to get those motors to work well on 3s as well as switching to a 1.9" diameter prop... In the end I have an absolute 2" rocket but the motors are limping along and the quad itself is barely holding together. I do plan on running 3s simply because i have the batteries already and I love BBB motors so I think the 6000kv will be a good fit... Thank so much for the info man it is appreciated!

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..
