Simple Toothpick build

Some general notes:

  • The 65mm hq props tend to fall off the shaft unless you push them down almost all the way
  • I made motor wire way too short so the rubber band had to go below the wires
  • I had the cap mounted initially but I removed it for weight saving, still flies fine
  • When you crash upside down the vtx antenna bends at the joint, I feel like this would eventually lead to it breaking off.

this boi lookin fine!! I really like the color scheme :D how are the motors? can you compare it to soemthing?

I don't really have anything to compare to, but I can say that the construction is very nice and they seem to hold up to crashes. Only other thing is that the motor wires seem a bit thin but I don't think that impacts performance. I don't have a lot of experience with the toothpick class but im loving the motor's preformace so far.

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..
