This quad is a test of how small, light motors perform on a very low weight 5" quad. The motors are Brotherhobby T2 1608s in 3200kv. I got them for half price during a clearance sale and that's what inspired me to build an ultralight 5". The motors weigh 22 grams each with very long wires, so I thought I could get the weight of the quad under 225g. I designed my own frame for this quad as I couldn't find any frames that I liked that would mount the motors and fit 5" props. The frame was cut by CNC Madness and it cost only $32.

The succex mini f4 stack has performed very well so far and it made it very simple to build this quad. The only soldering I had to do was for the motors, battery lead, camera, and receiver.

Dry weight of the quad is 203 grams. The frame itself weighs 60 grams. AUW with an RDQ 1300mah 4s is 387g.

frame looks dope. perfomance looks pretty good. how's efficiency?

Efficiency is pretty decent. It gets about the same amount of flight time as my heavy setup, but it's faster and is more responsive. Flying fast and going full throttle I can drain a 1300mah 4s in 2 minutes. If I fly normally it can go 3-4 minutes.

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..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
