Nice build! Do you use 3300KV or 4000KV version of the motors?

Whats the dry weight.Looking to make one with the DJI system and maybe add a decased GoPro

I've build similar one, with Zing 1408 motors and Gemfan props, but it makes huge noise, not sure it's because of the duct or the motors or the props. Is your build silent?

i built one using T-Motor 1408 3750kv and its almost whisper quiet. No kidding! It didnt sart out that way though i buy larger than 3" props and trim them using a Shendrones prop trimmer such that they just barely scrape the ducts to start with and after a minute or two they abraid down to a very tight fit with no scraping and much greater thrust and efficiency and super quiet. most of the noise you hear on yours is the propeller blade tips going super sonic and the air rolling over thtips and beating against the ducts. According to ducted fan research, If the tip clearance is <1% of the blade length there is no supersonic effect and you get 20% to 50% thrust increase. Having built this drone and also a Shendrones GEYSER I believe it!!

can you show some of the footage?

I just built this with the DJI system. It's a pretty decent frame for the price!

ıts light weight. I like the nylon funjet, better then 3d print

Whiffles   Oct 09, 2019

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..
