My 2nd quad but first build and this thing is a tank! My first quad is a 5" Cl-1 a friend built and the frame broke very fast. Recently replaced it and broke again. I'm still learning so I crash alot. And the 3" Phreak takes it.

I've hit a pole head on full speed(4s 1500mah) and only broke the camera.
Failsafe above a 10story building and free fell onto asphalt.
Hit a concrete wall cruising pretty fast.
Lots of parking garage crashes.
I also let all my friends that never flown try it out and disarm them when they got too high / far.

A motor finally died today. I had 1 minute to order Amazon's same day delivery so I bought it then realized they were 3750kv instead of my 4100kv i had on there. Since I'm changing all 4 motors now I might as well post the build.
Edit: Motor burnt because of bad ESC. Ordered replacement ESC

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..
