First i have to say THANk YOU STICKY RICE for the hard work you did designing this frame.
I hope you like it.
This is a prototype, Its still raw.I could not stop myself , after thinking along these lines for some tome , When i saw the original ,I just had to dust off the old printer and have a go.I instantly saw prospects and honestly my cad skills arent there yet. SO i RIPPED IT OFF lol.
As it stands i have only scailed up the original files to fit the arrow shafts i had.
the motor mount / heatsink / vibration damper , is a work in progress , it can be lighter and neater .
but so far its under 650g. with battery.
I was aiming for it to be big enough to run 4 , 5 ,6 and 7" props but the wires were too short for 7 , and i was not going add 10 mm to every motor wire. so 4 , 5 and 6 props. 4" would be for very specific sits, small parks tight pathways etc.
This is not meant to be a racer or a styler or a woper whooper or even a Spielburg,
It is still evolving. I hope to free myself from ever buying chinacarb again.
Braking an arm and just cutting another or smashing a motor mount and printing another really calls to me.
I live 550k from the closest fpv club and a 150k round trip to the next town , they have 3 horses!!!
What should i care its a bit porkey
Revisions and improvements.
Run motor wired inside arms.
Camera some twin cam setup when vendors get it right.
Lighter hardware on motor mounts.
2 part body and arm ends to clamp the rods rather than gluing in.
Add braces front and rear .
And a whole bunch of other stuff.
If Sticky Rice Isnt too insulted by what i have done to his baby i hope he comments.
CHEERS

The lizards (bobtails) were living where i wanted to build my house 17 years ago.
Hibernaiting under some old roofing iron, so i gently moved them for the winter, but they came back and shifted in, as if there was no house !!!! They own the place.

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..
