I wanted to build a lightweight 2S 2.5" HD freestyle copter.

It started off with 0802 motors. It was ok, but i wanted a bit more oomph so I added a 1103 version which I do prefer.

My frame is designed to be printed in polycarbonate - in which it's indestructible. However I know that printing in PC is beyond the reach of many - so I've started adding slightly modified versions of my frames that are sturdier to be printed in nylon-cf and possibly ABS ,(I've tested nylon-cf and it's great! I don't print in ABS, but I'm hoping it's still good). I've not yet got around to adding a sturdier version of this frame - if anyone is interested let me know and I'll get off my backside and finalise and upload it.

A bit too shakey still and still needs a tune.
I've also just replaced the camera holder printed in TPU rather than PC - not had a chance to fly it yet to see if that helps or makes it worse!

Nice! Thanks a lot! I want to print it in PolyMax PLA that's very strong for a PLA.

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..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
