This was my first 5" that I build and flown for a year.

The frame is wooden balsa.

I did not broke him, but it is sadly dissasembled.

Hello, thanks for the comment .
I was afraid that this frame could break soon, some damage appeared after big crash. Im used to do not fly with damaged things or with thing that are imperfect. So I ordered a new frame. After disassembling I examined the damage, and I have find out that it was just minor and the frame could be still safe flown.
At their price - 13usd, they are very quality motors, after year and half they are still like a new.
Photo with gemfans was taken just after the build completion, you can see that the camera angle there is also verry low. So I ran mainly cyclones 5046.

oh I see, interesting, im the polar opposite on damaged quads lol. good to hear about the motors, I've had mine for around the same amount of time and the Bearings could probably do with replacing but im happy with them too. and 5046? love that prop but I only tried it a few times before moving to biblades on these motors, they aren't the most torquey :)

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..
