This is my Toothpick build! The frame is designed by dave_c_fpv. I cut this frame myself on my CNC machine.
The AUW is 87g with LiPo included. I get flight times around 4-5min.

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..
