I wanted to build a sub 200gr (without lipo) race quad.

this is my try. I lack a precision balance but it's somewhere between 170 and 190gr.

I used 14xx 5" Floss 2 arms.

I just maidened it, I need to find what is the best battery size.
here is the first DvR (it needs more tuning, and the lipo are new and still needs break-in) above the vineyard behind my house (sorry no track)

CUT THE SOUND OFF !

how are the motors overall with low & mids? Also, do they seem to pull alot of amps?

850mah 4S might be a good size/weight for that!! if you can find 1000 also. 1300 might be a bit heavy and make it feel slow.

Good luck! keep us posted!

850mah ARE great ! I'm currently testing those for 3 days. I had a crash today, the original screws for xnova are too shorts and one motor unscrewed (not sure of the word) during a flight. I'm gonna change them tomorrow for longer m2 screws. (it might add 1gr to the 309gr with 850).
1050 are ordered and should be delivered this week, so I might try it this week end. The DvR is on the computer, I just need to upload it !

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..
