I don't race so I'm not overly concerned with the weight of this build but it's still pretty light and will be fast with the 2207-2700kv motors and 4 or 5S.

I didn't like the looks of the included camera mount and antenna holder so I ended up drawing and printing my own. I'm very pleased with how everything came out.

Where did you mount the Rx? And, did you it looks like you mounted the ESC upside down?

The Rx is mounted to the bottom of the top plate and the ESC is right side up, the wires are just soldered to the bottom pads for a cleaner look.

Nice! Thanks. Good looking build you have there. Do you still fly it? Often?

2207-2700kv on 5S!!??! That thing would be a rocket!

Yes sir, I use high kv motors and 5S on most of my builds. I really only use full throttle in small bursts and everything stays cool.

I mean really... for a standard arrangement this is certainly as clean as it gets, no? I bet those motors smoke (good way)... I've wanted to try 'em for ages.

I don't think it could be any cleaner, maybe a little lighter using a different VTx but I really like the Rush Tank. I've used the same motors on a few different builds and they are screamers on 5S.

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..
