2-3S Micro Raven

What can I say? It's a micro Raven.

This build uses the GepRC 12a board, 1103 8022kv Hyperlites with a unify nano & crossfire nano mounted in a single layer just behind the camera - an FXT T81 (or T80?.. the one without the connector). It feels wild having this much power & range in such a small & quiet package. All up weight is about 68g with a MiniStar 350mah 2S, 74g with a GNB 520mah 2S. Can cruise for over 7 minutes or fly aggressively for about 4.

Do you have a video you could put up? I would love to see the preformance.

Could you use a eachine nano vtx in this build?

What frame is it I really like how it looks

Do the props for the toothpicks come off those spindles easily? I want to try them, but I prefer bell top bolt holes.

They don't come off in flight at all. I wouldn't say they're super hard to remove but it takes some effort, maybe one of those prop removal tools would be nice. I just grip the bell and twist the prop off though :)

Huh... it's the only reason I haven't built a micro with those. Fortunately I haven't ordered the motors for the new little guy I'm setting up. I was thinking T-Motor\Racerstar collab micros, R6 Returners (I have some already. Totally worth 20 per corner.), or T-Motor F15, but I REALLY would rather have PyroDrone. I like them. They are good people and the 3 builds I have with their stuff all kick @ss! I guess I'll have to bite the bullet and order 'em!

Amazing little build. What crossfire antenna is that and how did you mount it?

The Van   Jun 13, 2019 

Thanks m8! It's the stock dipole, used to come with the nano RX (non special edition). It's mounted pretty much as shown, except it's slipped underneath the little white brace on the bottom. Right now the ends are hanging loose but I might attach a ziptie or something so they stay straight.

Super clean build! Are those red FC gummies 3D printed? If so do you have a link to the .stl? Also curious about the frame, is that going to be for sale?

Thanks! Nah, the gummies are what came with the GepRC board. I'm sure a printable option would work though, maybe with ninjaflex to match the dampening qualities. I think yes, despite there already being a ton of similar frames entering the market - it's a solid micro companion to the full sized Raven so I will be selling them around the same time Seagull pre-orders start :)

Awesome, thank you!

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..
