Donald Trump asked me to build a quad for him.
So it turned out to this 6 inch lightweight with GPS.
He has not tried it yet, he's too busy slaying bando's at the time.
The Emax MT-2208 II are very efficient in combination with the Emax long range propellors. I got more than 6 minutes flight time in the testfilght as seen on the video.
GPS works fine, heading, distance, speed. Only have to test the return function.

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..
