that 17 dollar frame is not going protect 200 dollars worth of electronics. get a real floss! they are already cheap enough and should be a lot better than clones

SaschaFPV   Jun 20, 2019 

yes i want order some other frame sometime but i want a lightweight Frame, maybe some different and not Floss style

SpikeDiesel   Jul 14, 2019 

I thought lightweight was the way to go in the beginning also, I learned too light breaks easy, and isn't easy to control, throttle pushes up into trees above, heavier freestyle frames fly MUCH SMOOTHER

IcarusIX   Jun 20, 2019  

nice build but when cheaping out, cheaping out on a skinny frame is more of a risk whearas you can get away with cheaping a chunky frame but quality is more important for skinny. but who cares, rebuild when it dies amirite?

SaschaFPV   Jun 21, 2019 

i thing its the best choice and if the frame is broken i will rebuilt it whit a better freestyle frame

IcarusIX   Jun 21, 2019 

some may say it wouldve been better to start woth the freestyle frame but experiencing the skinny one is a good idea too. hopefully it lasts

So... what's the motor soft mount pad (under your top plate screw) in the back about?

SaschaFPV   Jun 20, 2019 

there is no mount or anything else (i think you mean the holder arm of the 5,8ghz antenna)

Jodie Froster   Jun 20, 2019 

Under the screw in the back of the top plate, it's a + shaped object, with 4 screw holes, and some text on it. If i'm not mistaken it's a soft mount for a 22xx size motor. It sais: Sasha Hegemann, and there is an address under that. Is it just a return address printed on a motor soft mount? Like a tag on a dog collar in case you lose it, and someone finds it? So they can return it to you?

SaschaFPV   Jun 21, 2019 

aaahh ok this you mean
in Germany every Quad needs a plate whit the kontakt to the owner
this plaze is for the Motor but it dont fits there thats why i built it on top
it has no soft mounting funktion

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..

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..
