My buddy sent me a piece of FPV history all built out with cc3d, flysky rx, deans connector, and 1806. I told myself I needed to fly it like that but chickened out.
I took the guts from the firebirb and some stuff that was laying around and slapped this thing together. Flies great!

consider me inspired! started building my blackout super mini h quad last night, cant believe how much hardware these old frames use

Amazingly versatile frame!

Yeah I might rebuild it nicely. Just slapping it together from junk laying around and it's a nice flier. I'll put some thought into it and probably print some parts and have a nice little beater for sure! Thanks man :)

It's a turtlet v1 so I kind of want it to die. That's a 5.2ah Liion. It's more than a little big. ;P

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..
