This is my third budget 5-inch copter project I have submitted this year. The frame is a chinese iflight XL5 V2 clone, while the engines, ESC, FC, camera and VTC are elements from the Eachine, Tyro109 models. Flysky 8ch receiver. Geprc 5040 propellers, cheap and great at freestyle.
The frame of this copter is relatively light (115 g), but most importantly, extremely durable and resistant to accidents. This copter will ultimately be used for daily exercises of new aerial figures, so the priority was its endurance and I hope that it will cope with this task ;)
I used the arms mounting in the opposite way than in the original, which gave me a full 30 mm space inside the frame for comfortable installation of the stack consisting of 3 elements. Thanks to the built-in and compact design, it protects electronics inside.
The total cost of its construction is about 120 USD.

hey bud,  like the build an the inveryed arms.. hows the vtx antenna do with that foam around the base???

KristofFPV   Oct 02, 2019 

thanks;) the foam is tightly tucked between the rear spacers and frame plates. In addition, m3 screws with a length of approx. 12-15 mm are screwed in from the bottom of the frame, preventing its displacement.
The VTX antenna holds steadily and is flexible in the event of an accident.

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..
