I had a crazy idea. JUST FOR FUN
Drink bottle speed challange . Lets see how fast we can make them go.
And to be fair , because none of us has an unlimited budjet I propose a handycap points system .
Something like the cost of the build as shown below subtracted from top speed as seen in the dvr on osd just post a screen shot.
The only rule is the contence of the bottle be consumed (if safe ).
This is just a mockup .
Im looking at mounting the camera on a servo to make it adjustable in flight.
All input welcom

Kwadkinstine did you end up making this quad?
Where would I find ideas for fast quads?

Thankyou in advance.

Hi i got it 90% done but stopped to see if there were any challengers.
Look up Quadstar drones on yt , His builds were my inspiration , but he has taken those builds down ???.
Going fast is about airodynamics and propeller motor combo, look at the props used by the fixed wing speed deamons. all the rest is gestemation

Never seen motors like these. What are they, and what's with the weird base/mount?

I love it! 1000.8 times better than my first use of a bottle for aero. I'm a little behind on my rotorbuilds, otherwise yoi would have gotten the "like" earlier

Cheers . Im glad ypu like it.
I neerly took it down cause i thought i might have offended you.
But the idea was to get peeps involved in an eco friendly way . No ttravell and recycling.
Ive had a few likes . Got anny ideas on how to get this rolling so people can post their results in one place.
Some video of some pretty specktacular crashes should be hillarious.
Cheers and thanks again.

I still haven't caught up - but yes, I was afraid you would have thought I was offended when I saw how long it was up! When I regularly refer to the XLR as project dildrone, it's hard (intended) to offend a person like me - now you've got a new category... I bet rcgroups would be the best place or maybe fpvlab. Fpvlab is where I came across the speed challenge that was started by roboforcerX2000.

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..
