Hi Just another dumb idea.
We have beast and x class quads , by all accounts expensive and not the easiest to tune.
What i thought was a more bf default friendly platform , up to 7 inch props but as many as you can fit on a frame with maximum 8 inch arms.
They would be MONSTA.
More words later.
Best time of the year here atm in WESTERN AUSTRALIA wheat belt ,wild flower season. It really is spactacular.
EDIT OR UPDATE 3,13,2020
Cudos to nurk for taking this config to the next level, im not claiming mine is the first , because its not,
I just dont have the money or resources to get expensive cameras to strap to it or the need to make money .

So I am trying so hard to figure out what that canopy is. Is it a toilet tank seal? Is it a camera mount from something else? I love the "valkerie helm" look, the adjustable camera mount looks like the visor, and the antenna mount as the wing/ear.
I dig the standoff between the motors, very clever use of existing materials (clearly something you excel at!).
So lets talk about that yellow vehicle yo took some pics on. The door dooks like its from an 80'e era small pickup truck, but the rear window is a hatchback style glass (kind of like an 80's corvette, or maybe an RX7?). The fender and tailloghts though... no idea. It looks like the rear fender could just be an aftermarket part. Maybe fiberglass? Maybe bondo/body filler at the edges?
I can't figure out what it is!!?!!

!978 mazda rx7 .
It was one of my street racers. when i was a bad boy. There was not much mazda left by the time i finished modding it.
Full fg daytona body kit ,it had massive boots and a 13b turbo motor running on liquid petrolium gas.11.2 seconds true 1/4 mile I lived neer the fastest drag track in the world growing up. I built it in 1995. The front was put back to metal after granny smith wiped it off at a roundabout. It was a nice car at one time in its life..

I like the pictures with the daisy flowers. Monsta quad could be like a hedge trimmer and take those flowers out really fast. I need to try hedge trimmers cause my rear cheeks are like a chia pet except its hair and my hair clippers get clogged up. I dont like the stuffy feeling during the warm months and going to church is really bad with no air conditioning. Its like the antichrist materializes in my pants and jacks up the humidity to a billion. Sorry I got off subject.

Try rubbing alcohol and a match. also a fire hose.
Burn those weeds right off. Be careful of roasted nuts

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..
