Ultra light micro FPV quads has been around 3 years ago but electronics was very limited back then. Now, we have the new "toothpick" class which is basically the same concept as before but with better and lighter components and they are cheap too! It's definitely a good time to build an ultra light micro.

The frame I used here is probably the cheapest 2.5mm thick carbon one I found. The FC came from my mobula 7HD and all the rest are brand new.
I'm really impressed with these amaxinno 1103 motors, very smooth and punchy. They are almost the same flight characteristic as the betafpv 1103 but I like this one better.

Update:
Change the FC to 20A betafpv toothpick FC since my crazybee had died after a crash. I am using default pids, check the flight video here

pids?

I have already updated the FC sorry. I am now using the 20A betafpv. It flies really well on stock BF 4.1 no rpm filter enabled.

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..
