This a new rather experimental design. Called it Jenga because the principle how the four identical carbon parts are stacked reminds me of how the wooden bricks are stacked in the Game ;-) Unfortunately I had to sacrfice a bit of stiffness since the arms can't be cut alon the weave. Still flies great with those light T-motor F10 on 2S!

Oh man you did it before me! I was going to do the same multiple arm thing with my Diamond 113r. Same motors and props too. Good choices. I'm designing a carbon canopy for mine. TPU canopies are too mushy and weak for the amount of abuse I put them through.

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..
