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.

Thanks! The frame, the AIO board and the motors should be able to handle it. I have not tried it yet. Maybe a 3s battery could be useful in this case.

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad.

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..
