Just a generic 185mm true-x frame with a custom designed pod that sits on top of the 30.5mm stack. Very narrow clearance with 5.1" props.

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.
