Tired of propwash? Try this build.
Small, fast, with LED and cheap.

  • Modified a 3DPOWER frame to fit in the FC/ESC without standoffs
  • Cut out the "center" part of the old trashcan frame as battery holder
  • Cut the sides of the trashcan LED board and cram it under the hood
  • Cut the bottom half of the camera protection (props come very near it).
  • (while you are at it, upgrade to TX30)
  • Sandwitch everything together with M2 Bolts and nuts: From bottom: Battery tray, Carbon frame, FC/ESC, VTX, hood.

Enjoy!

Weighed the trashcan after mod and it says its at 37g vs, BGood site says 33g stock, so not bad. I also added a bigmac ufl antenna. Definitely helped with washout I think, haven't tested a ton because I broke a few props lol, but I did do a couple dives and it was good.

Did you drill the holes to mount the motors and if so did it matter exactly how you did it? I assume you did, but was just wondering.
EDIT: comes pre-drilled, pretty neat, ordered the frame.

Does this frame help with the jello? I've got a Trashcan and the jello is what kills it for me.

I think the reason for jello is the canopy, not the frame.
It definitely will not get worse with the carbon frame :)

I think so. I'm going to try jamming some paper or something under the cam to see if that helps.
