Leftover Parts Calimero

I had a bunch of old micro parts laying around so I decided to build a little toothpick sized quad on the Calimero Frame.
While I initally designed the Calimero HD frame for the Caddx Turtle V2 this is an adaptation for "regular" toothpick builds without HD capable cam. It doesn't have the slots for the SD Card and different mounts to fit 25.5x25.5 whoop boards and 16x16.
This is the first frame I printed out of SainSmart PETG and I am totally blown away by that stuff! It is kind of soft but also impossible to break (just bends at some points) and because it is kind of soft it seems to dampen vibration! I also used it on a build with the Caddy Turtle HD cam and I got insanely smooth video with literally zero jello.

I get stoaked when I see a new post from you now. I can tell before I even read the name on the post, all it takes is a glance at the thumbnail.
Elegant.
I think it needs a polycarbonate bikiini top for the cam/antenni/vTx. Maybe you could just print it a mowhawk?

Thank you so much ! Really cool to hear that!I love the idea with the mowhawk. Maybe I’ll build some kind of ring that goes around the lens with a little mowhawk on it

very nice simple camera mount. durebility isnt sportive ;-) choosing between active safety - lower weight and better handling or passive safety is allways question about priorities or flying consisdancy. i like possibilities and safety in my activity my hands:
i vote for the pure bikiniless version - more sportive more sexy :-)

This is the 4th installment to my popular "Wizard Killer" series, and is based on the popular Wizard X220HV 6S. As usual, the goal was to build a substantially better quad, yet come in below the retail price of the BNF kit. Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..

The iFlight XL5 V3 is a fantastic freestyle frame for the price. It features chamfered edges on some very nice quality carbon fiber. My goal for this build was to use high quality components at a relatively low price. Not only that, but I managed to reduce the number of solder points to the bare minimum. I've never built such a plug-in-play quad! The flight controller has an integrated VTX and doesn't..
