[if you are building this, the antenna ear protectors are on backwards in the pictures below, make sure they are pointing the right way or they won't protect much :-) ]

Decided to build Banggood's doinker/halo micro brushless clone. The BNF isn't available yet, but all the parts and frame are, so I gave it a shot. Relatively smooth and painless build, but the cam/vtx combo will require some alternative mounting solution because the included two-sided tape was no good. Also, this is far from the lightest design for a 90mm brushless, so if weight is your concern look elsewhere. Otherwise this seems to be a pretty good, sturdy 2S backyard basher.

Are you using a 1s or 2s battery for this and what size and type?

you have put the motors as 4x4x because they ship as a pack of four, it makes the price look higher than it should

How does it perform? Do you feel like it has enough punch to recover from flips and rolls?

motors don't want to spin up, not even in motors tab of BF, although they power on just fine and show normal twitching. will have to look further into it tonight

looks like it was just a faulty solder joint in there somewhere, all good now! i disassembled most of the frame though to redo the soldering, need to put her back together now

Looking forward to seeing some FPV footage from it!

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..
