This is my budget Rotor Riot CL1 build that absolutely shreds without sacrificing durability.

The RCX motors are $3 cheaper per when you remove the warranty which is void the second you touch a soldering iron to the wires (making it completely useless) which drops $12 from the total cost here.
I got three of these Cicada AIO FC/ESC's for $30 each when they were on clearance which drops $37 from the total
I'm also only using one of the 2 Foxeer antennas which drops another $10
This brings the total cost of the build down to $231

My goal for this build was to use high quality components at a relatively low price. Not only that, but I managed to reduce the number of solder points to the bare minimum. I've never built such a plug-in-play quad! The flight controller has an integrated VTX and doesn't..

Update! Happymodel has released a new V2 Frame which uses a more durable plastic. The Happymodel Mobula7 is one of those rare treats to hit the micro scene. Countless models hit the market every month, but this one just happens to check all the boxes. It's a 2S brushless micro with a 75mm motor stance. It's slightly larger than the more traditional 65mm brushed micros, but it's still quite small...
