This is a shout out to Dave_C_FPV for bring out another great frame. I had this made as soon as I saw it. I took another approach on motor selection thou. Takes little to no effort to get this thing to hover. I feel this build will be very lipo friendly. I do not have a scale @ the moment due to issues, but I can says its very lite. Cant wait to get her broke in proper!!

Hah! I knew it when I saw it (2204 Hyperlites on a Dave_C frame). I could tell because I too push that combination. I love how mine flies (light and fast), whadda you think 'bout this one?

I barely push the gas and she goes lol

Yep... that's what mine's like! Sometimes ya get a "perfect combination" and the results are so dramtaic (in comparison to your other rigs) that you can't help but wonder what the "big difference" really is. Now I fitted the ARS-5 frame with a really vertical canopy (QuadStarDrones ARX-R), and that lightweight, short stator build actually feels like its "true ARX-R" brethren (in other words... I can get it going pretty dang fast).
The world of building quads never gets old. :)

That is aweaome!! Yeah cant wait to see how fast she goes. And no building rigs never does lol.

Really nice build! How is the TPU part for mounting the battery strap working out? I had the same idea but didn't have time to test it yet :-D

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..
