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.

what is the link to the frame and canopy?

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?

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!

A couple years ago I built the TransTEC Frog and since then I've been patiently waiting for another TransTEC frame to catch my eye. Fast forward to today and the TransTEC Laser S is that frame. It's a 82g racing frame that features 6mm arms, a TPU micro cam mount, 30.5mm and 20mm stack mounts and 3K carbon and 7075 hardware. My goal here was to build a high quality 6S racer at a reasonable price. I'd..

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..
