Screech hypetrain

The original plan was to come up with a light weight freestyle build. this would be the third quad i have built so i wanted to perfect some of the things i wish i had done differently on my previous two builds.

the platform.. the strix screech frame came up because it is a frame at 99 grams with enough space to fit what i want. with most freestyle frames coming in at well over 100 grams i thought this was a good light weight fit. the chamfered edges are a nice touch and i sealed those up with glue and black nail polish. i topped it off with the gopro mount to match.

i am a quality over quantity type person but more so a person that appreciates value. the following parts where purchased because i got some sort of coupon or giftcard for them or see a quality to them that makes them superior.

i wanted to try a 2207 motor and the hyprtrain acro fits that bill. when rotor riot ran a flash sale and had them greatly discounted i purchased them. i soft mounted those motors. then the joshua bardwell fc went on sale and i purchased that and his 32 bit esc to match. the new runcam eagle micro luminier version is light weight and has the built in remote which is a great feature and unparalled in my eyes. i opted for the mateksys vtx because of its abilty to be stacked right where i wanted and the mmcx connector. im using flysky so the x6b is almost identical in size with the vtx. i drilled holes in the back of the frame to stack these.

all together im very happy with the flight charecteristics of this quad. im using hq 5x5x3 to distribute the power to the air.

the goal was a clean lightweight build i could rely on and i think i have made that. my fear now is crashing it.

Noice man, stealth mode.  Just bought this frame and about to print some TPU parts for it, fear crashing new builds too, but i feel better with tpu guards on stuff even if it addds weight, hit me up if ya need anything printed....I've got black ;)

Ah, well there's this one, not my design.  https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3310012
Looks similar to the included one though.

I'll print n fit it when frame arrives in a few days ..  looks like theres a few updated designs with more mount holes too, as I also run micro Eagles.

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..
