Any idea if the sides will fit on original bottom plate?

deadmoo   Nov 16, 2019 

I would guess not. It is not an exact copy. It seems to be scaled down a bit.

Is this an exact copy of the ummagawd frame? I ordered the acro 3 from bg, and there are some annoying differences:

Sadly, the original ummagawd dampners for the sides do not fit in the smaller holes of these sides. And that's the whole point of this frame, good dampners, the ones included here are not as good.

Be aware that this frame is less height than original (3mm difference +-). Because the damners are much smaller. Only very tight stacked pcb's will fit underneath the hood, sadly. It's also a few mm less wide than original frame, so small cameras don't fit well (frame too wide), and big cameras neither (too small frame). So you need to find your own solution to that.

It's half the price of the original, so well, you get what you pay for. With some small adjustments however, they could make this frame much better.

but maybe this one is better?

This is not an exact copy but the dampers on this one seem to work well on this clone.

How's the performance? Still want to build one, but I think the frame, especially with TPU prints is kind of heavy.
Is it?

It is okay. It is probably just a little bit worse compared to Furibee X140 that I salvaged the parts from.

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..
