First micro since 2017 and first bl micro ever. theres a 'toothpick this toothpick that' thing going on, idek what a toothpick is even anymore. got the parts off fb and designed something with real toothpicks and like a true fpv-er, botched something together. performance impressed me but I cant really compare. 18g ish? flew fpv for a bit (fairly ballistic) but no pics sadly, and I smashed that up :( soI moved on and designed another one the next day. chopsticks for that next one (visible in a pic here) but I'll come back to designing a better actual toothpicks frame later

also sneaky shot of a few other canopies and incomplete things

Personally, I think you should get an award for making a toothpick out of toothpicks. Just lemme know where to cast my vote.

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..
