This is version 2 of my super light 2S whoop.

After the failure with the initial version, which you can find here
https://rotorbuilds.com/build/16060
I decided to rebuild it and kick it up a notch.

This time I designed my own frame since there is nothing decent I can source locally.

Most important feature for me is the accessible USB port. This was a issue for all the other frames of this class.
If you have any ideas or want it to fit on other AIO boards, it's a open source project. Feel free to contribute!

The little thing now have a TBS Nano Pro32 and a Caddy EOS2 which is a huge step up from the previous AIO Cam.

AUW: 67g

Here a flight video with the 100mm frame version.
Follow me on YT if you want to see updates on this little thing!
Thanks!

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..
