As Captain Jack Sparrowe said: "Wherever we want to go, we go. That's what a ship is, you know. It's not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails. That's what a ship needs. But what a ship is...what the Black Pearl really is...is freedom"

My second Toothpick Build called "Black Pearl".
As I'am part of the Facebook Group "TWIG Builders" I became quick a big fan of the TWIG Frame.
Building this beauty made fun and was easy (not as hard, as the Sanchez 3" with 1404 Motors)
Flys pretty nice and I love the 5000KV with the AVAN Rush 2.5", in my opinion a perfect match!
Weight is 55g without Battery.

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..
