For a little evening fun. The neighbours complained they could hear me flying but could not see the quad all the time or at all.
So i slapped this monstrissity together.
Diatone ghost frame.
Eachine racer 250 motors.
The leds are novilty automotive park light replacement the ones with the ir remote , they work just fine on 4s.
Not a lot more to say other than it flies pretty good. being fairly light .
Ive built a few of these before and while the frame is pretty tough it is not durable enough to justify putting in the time to make them neat tidy and tight like i would a regular basher. Its for going up high and doing interpretive .
I live in OZ and this is how we iron shirts.

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..
