Toothpuff

This is a build inspired by the toothpick.The most trouble I think we are going to have from these builds are vibrations. I found that using a rubber garment on the bottom then a standoff then the rubber garment that is attached to the fc works great. I also used tpu 1103 softmounts for the motors. This quad flies amazing on stock pids however I did raise D gain to 35. When we are using these 65mm props it is very important to get the prop to sit as tight as possible on the shaft these will reduce vibrations as well. With the betafpv 1103 motors I found that a drill bit of 1.45mm works great. They are so many of these frames right now that I have been buying a few here and there to tryout. I really see these builds growing and getting better has time goes on.

Really can not Express how well this quad flies. These betafpv 1103 with a high KV and the 65mm props performs very well.

You could use the Betafpv version with no reciever and hook up a xm+.

probably the best way to go but for me the built in spi receivers is fine for close proximity acro.

If I decide to go with a separate receiver it will probably be a R9MM. But there's something cool about having as much stuff on that one board as possible... easier too.

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..
