Broken wizards and other bits of stuff.
Just mucking about , I put this together . With a little thought . I hope the pics tell the story , it was really easy.
The heat shrink on the ends keeps everything from sliding about and i feel will give some vibration dampening.
I used a bench grinder to mod the ends of the arms (DONT BREATHE THE DUST).
Use what you have as far as arms .But the key is the whole pattern on the wizards and some other frames.
With these bottom plates i didnt have to drill extra holes only make the 4 in the middle a bit bigger so the end of the arms would slide all the way in.
Have at it!!!!
In the next few days i will be making a moulded canopy for this not printed . Lost wax mould technique with polyester resin and carbon fiber.
if interested in seeing the process let me know.
Update upgrade.
Finally got a replacement stack to replace the faulty all in one i originally used.
Mamba 40 amp , are they good . seems ok so far. only had light for one pack so far BF 4.004 .
Clean video without the cap . Just remembered i forgot to install it . Must do that.

So how does she fly? Do you get any noticable flight characteristics from the arms? Does it wobble?

dude that looks sick, especially the 'stitches'! your antenna placement looks pretty dodgy ngl, but apart from that, nice. considering custom cnc arms? the holes of the nighthawk x5 arms (idk they look like it) for the old motor mount is a bit of a weak spot probably

yes the antenna is dodg but i was keen to fly it. the arms are nighthawk 6 and the motor mounts will be revised.
Made with shit from the bin.
Thanks for the G

I am lazy its the angle on the nighthak arms. if it works WOOO HOOO if there is a issue i will change it

oh IC, let us know how that works out (I have spare arms (also from a nighthawk), might give something like this a go)

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..
