Propel Star Wars Speeder Bike with AIO camera for some FPV flying! Flies like a bus but the FPV view is awesome.

Speeder is powered by proprietary 800mah 1S Lipo and will get you about 3mins of flight. Does not like the wind and feels top heavy when turning sharp. Propellers are on the bottom so you need a smooth flat surface for take-off or just use the included prop guard. Says - "quadcopter can reach flying speeds up to 35mph"
Soldered a JST cable to the battery so it powers the camera and 3D printed a small "L" bracket to hold the camera.
Flight Weight is about 95grams with AIO camera.

Did the same to the T-65 X-WING. IMO does not fly as good as the speeder bike. There's also the Tie Fighter. I used a pocket radar and got about 27mph during a speed run!

Sound affects on both are awesome.

NOTE: No failsafe or PID adjustments. Does have 3 speed settings.

The controller has real SW sound effects and music, kind of cheesy BUT really adds to the FPV experience when flying the bike. You have a trigger button for laser sound effects. You can play laser battles with other SW Propel drones, take battle damage and forced landings...FPV flyer vs LOS Flyer who would win? Epic moives in the making!

The camera view is amazing. You see the front forks of the bike and flying close to the ground, felt like I was on Tatooine.

The iFlight XL5 V3 is a fantastic freestyle frame for the price. It features chamfered edges on some very nice quality carbon fiber. 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...
