PolySter build on The One Ten frame

This build is a first iteration of building with a 16 x 16 stack for poly S builds (2S and probably higher in the future). For a first attempt it came out pretty well. Its a tight build but greatly reduces the frontal area compared to the whoopster style builds.

Frame: 110 mm MTM , 2 mm thick. This frame will mount both the typical whoop 3 hole motors and the 4 hole 11xx.

Diatone Mamba F411 Nano stack Flight Controller/Esc

Motors: Happymodel 1102 9000kv

Camera: Newbeedrone Bee Eye

VTX: Eachine Nano

Reciever: FRSKY XM

Props: There are several options now for 65 mm press-ons. Whocares and HQ press ons are my current favorites.

Dry weight: 31 gm

AUW with 2S 300maxh: 47 gm

Zip tie canopy? I absolutely love that. To me the zip tie is completely meant to be used on a quad, and this is a great example of that. A-freaking-plus!

See, I like that it is all suspension yet rigid. This is the solution to something I have been mulling over: those toothrip hex frames on Armattan's site don't have canopies, so what to do. Doing something like this might be the best way for me to make that happen. Thanks for the update!

i just tried 3s 1102 rx3020 ( the real one, not the clone one ) today. it doesn't have much control but the speed is insane for 1102 motors. i believe it's the fastest combo. and i like this build of yours, so i want to build one with those props. mine right now is 44g dry, i hope i can bring it down to 40g with your build.

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..
