apetite for building but only old pnp parts - gives me this joke funbuild

start as stupid idea, use the drill at some mesuring-beech, brings me huge fun. some glue, one screw, using glassfiber-tape to make it less sensitive against impacts. but a good strategy would be; no impacts. motors has 1.5mm level difference between each other, gives the escs and cpu a littlebit extrawork with unclean air. swapping my old aurora100mm electronics. shrink around everything, totaly shrunken. flexibel shrink-top give me quadspiritual feel xD, an endangered camera-lens. cut and solder video in/out on the cam vtx aio, bring the osd to display. its about 60gr, 90gr with battery.

when you start to build something which seems to be not attractive and while building it reachs your passion, it feels like winning something.

i have some gf3035-triblade would give them another try with this higher kv motors andi will try the kingkong 2840triblade props.
indoor test with gf3025 - lovely-silent and it flys surprisingly well with 2" tune, agog to try it outdoors.


huge simplicity building fun, was the same with my old brushed 8520 rebuild in the past, drifting around became some charme with it. probably i need a cfk 130mm frame :wink:

kk et125 frame upgrade, same weight but better performance
1106 3800kv racerstars, adowngrade in speed but throttle authority is very good, able to fly in tiny space like a whoop, up to 8min flytime out of a 450mah 2s, no sag at all linear voltage reduction

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..
