Definitely my most challenging build yet. Originally the frame came with 15mm of build space. I cut down some 20mm standoffs to 17mm to give myself some extra space. There were some features I wanted that just wouldn't fit in 15mm. Literally, there is only enough space left inside for a little air flow. Otherwise, awesomeness!!! Quick, balanced, and most importantly loads of fun. The 300mah is a decent match, I may try something a little higher to see if there is much difference. I tried a bunch of 260mah's but they are on the cusp of being underpowered...too much sag. Just got in a Racer Nano to try, looking at the Predator Nano also. The one thing that I'm not too sure about, is the screw holes on the guppy frame are countersunk. The problem being countersunk holes on 2mm and 1.5mm CF doesn't leave much material for structural support. Time will tell.

I've only done a few test flights around the house...it was raining out when I finished it. I haven't ever had a drone this size to compare it to so I'm not sure how it performs. I think it performs well and it is fun to fly, but haven't tried any acro in the house. I have some more lipos on order, once they're in I'll get it outside and post a video. I am considering removing the motor guards, not sure. Thanks for the comments!

I tried those motor protectors, made my motors run hot.
They look awesome though, but took them off.

I have often wondered of the effect they could have... I do not really need them, but I too appreciate their asthetic.

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..
