It seems every other build these days is a massive droner! There are good reasons for that, it's not just hype. It's a fantastic frame, easy to build, provides good protection and looks great.

It's especially easy if your FC of choice is HGLRC Zeus. It leaves you wondering if you have forgotten something because the build comes together so quickly.

Curious to try the new R9 mini. It's as tiny and costs just as much as the XM but it has telemetry and hopefully, even with less than optimal antenna placement, will give a good range.

Total weight without a battery is 97g

What do you mean? It's a beast on 4S! Definitely runs on 4S though the motors get hot. So if anything it's the motors that limit it. Check the specs, they say the FC will run on 4S as long as the current is under 10A(or 13A, I don't remember)

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..
