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.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
