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 :)

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

You've probably heard the term "Cinewhoop". Traditionally it's a 3" ducted quad capable of carrying a GoPro Hero7 Black at a low 10 degree angle. More recently the term "Cine" has been applied to a number of RTF quads ranging from 85mm to 3". They all focus on their HD capability, but none compare to the stabilization of Hypersmooth (only available on the Hero7 Black). This is what really offers that..
