This is my third RD5 build. I tried to keep the weight down, since I use 2205 R6 motors.
Ended up the final weight to 271g with canopy, heavy props and strap. :D
I guess this build will be really fast!

I designed the canopy with the detachable crash flip fin: It can be found from the same place, where I have the punisher canopy: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3591353
I also remixed the TPU end piece to include the AXII micro mount

Printed the TPU parts (stack nuts, rear cage mount and crash flip fin) from neon yellow TPUA98. Painted the rear arm spacers to match the yellow color highlights....

Tell me what you think?

scanned all frame parts -> converted to svg. this way it is easy to test fit all the parts that I've designed 😊

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..
