I THINK MY ALIEN IS GETTING TIRED OF THIS
He's been in a total of three separate builds now. Originally, of course, he was in the Modulus 65 110X (remember that old thing?), then the Byte Size, and now, in the Byte Size V2, the new and improved Byte Size! Anyway, this AFNG Anubis16 is a trooper. It's taken it all without a single complaint, and it's probably the best FC I've ever owned. I guess that's what you get when you get a one-of-a-kind , handmade flight controller.

THE BUILD
So I've got to be honest, this really wasn't much of a build, more of a swap. At first, I used the included EOS2/Unify Nano mount instead of my ol' trusty WolfWhoop WT07, and it worked out okay, but it added a couple grams. This probably would've been fine except that I was too cheap to order some 1103s and stuck with my DYS 1102 10000kV, and they just barely fell short of the power I wanted, so I switched back to the AIO. However, the if you get some 1103 for this build, the EOS2/Unify combo is excellent and I highly recommend it.
Anyway, the build is fairly simple, especially since the stack is no longer structural like it was with the V1. This makes both assembly and maintenance much simpler.

Because it's annoying, that's why. I find this 2" formula to be super fun, and it doesn't force me to rely on sketchy AIO boards where one failure can take out two vital components of your quad. Maybe I'm just old school, but that doesn't sit well with me. Plus, I only sell things I can test, and since I have no interest in testing AIO builds, I couldn't sell a frame for them. 65mm 2S 110X is a formula we micro pilots have messed with for literally years, as in the first build I ever saw used heli tail motors (~1103) and 75mm props on an extremely rare micro brushless frame. So in any case, this isn;t new, and I think there's a reason it went into the past :)

Hello, do you have a CLI dump for this? What BF version are you using as most have said stay with 3.5.7 for micros. Thanks.

Yes.... 2" is the best. You can live without a 5", but not without a micro.

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..
