2018 F1-6 Rebuild

I had the Asgard32 going spare after giving up on it in a Flowride on account of it being just too big to fit properly & my previous F1 build was feeling a bit outdated with a F3 flight controller & no OSD... so it seemed like a logical upgrade/rebuild path! With the single board stack I dropped it onto 20mm standoffs (it might even have been possible to use 15mm, the FPV camera is actually the bottleneck). One side effect of the shorter standoffs was the requirement to boost the HD cam mount to clear the props, so I printed a riser in the super soft FlexiSMART to sit beneath the rigid.ink flexible PLA seat.

Hi! I just built a LR drone with F80 1900 but lm not sure which prop they can take with 4S (7" or 8") .Which props do you like most with your f80? Thank you!

On 6" 4S my favourite is the Gemfan 6042-2, on 7" 4S I use the HQ 7x3.5x3 V1S. I've tried all sorts of 6" & 7" props & never had issue with overheating etc. even with heavier/more aggressive props like the 7" triblade Cyclone.

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..

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..
