BandoSlayer 2
This is the third build in a series covering the frames from Detroit Multirotor. This frame, BandoSlayer 2, is an update to a very successful freestyle frame we introduced last year. I haven't quite finished this, but it's close enough to post. Still need to test motors and then appy heat to the shrink wrap on the ESCs. The upgrades to the frame include using Toray carbon Fiber throughout except for the non-conductive locking plate and it's a little longer, giving ample room for bigger batteries. I'm using the Joshua Bardwell board and I'm anxious to see how it flies. It did create one unforseen issue that I had to work around. No big deal though. I've posted a ton of pics that go through every step of the build. Hope you enjoy and thanks for viewing. Comments are welcome and appreciated. By the way, the first shipment of these under $70 frames sold out in a couple of days. Next shipment is due the week of March 10, so If you want to pre-order, hit us up at https://www.detroitmultirotor.com/collections/frames/products/the-bando-slayer-2

The Bardwell Board had a gizmo (that's the technical term) on the bottom that created a clearance issue with the center cinch nut. It was easily solved with some small washers from the motor hardware.

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..
