2nd bl micro ever. (designed built and flown within 12 hours of the last, send help) complete overkill of a frame. I'd be happy putting this canopy on a heavy 5 inch racer, that's how much of a strongboi he is. sadly the canopy weighs about 8g (very very sad) so I'll design another canopy some other time which is lighter. I also may have found the ultimate way to mount a receiver but what do you guys think? it also looks like an egg and or alien so that's neat

if you can put braces between each arm...you can probably go for thinner chopsticks :D....ive got experience with using sticks as frames :D

I think second season is done, ye but I havent watched it, manga lol
And I am designing one with more braces but the idea with that one is to have a more 3d frame with angled toothpicks which are thinner bc that sounds like a lot stronger of a structure. yeah, I saw your chopsticks posts, love them! how are you finding them? tbh I dont know much about bl micros yet, im just learning

theyre a pain in the butt to design on but prettyyy durable if you ask me. Im just experimenting now and just really trying to see if i can make it better. if you need any help tho just ask 😁

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..
