Hi

I want to show you my latest build. It's for fast longrange and mountain surfing. Dry weight is 832g. It's not the lightest but I think it's okay with the brotherhobby 2812 1115KV avenger V3. With this quad I want to break my personal record of 8km. Goal is the new dji fpv limit of about 12km. But normally I will use it for mountain and cloud surfing. Every component is covered with silicone conformal coating. So it's no problem to fly it und wet conditions.

    The aeronauts Propeller explode during a punchout. Quad fell about 8m from the sky. Weak spot is the alu cam mount. It's bent and my 6S 4000mah lipo is dead. The 10mm arms are very stiff and the rest is not damaged. I'll switch to the HQ MQ 8X4,5X3. Alt Tag

    Alt TagAlt TagToday I received my mew costom made double quad rx antenna from Antennenfreund.de.
    I love the performance and optic of his handmade antenna from Germany. With this antenna I reached my personal record of 8km on my 10" quad.

I wish it was a joke... that's the max I can reach with my setups... I lose video but not controls
same range with different quads 500mw, 800mw an 2 watts
goggle side is rapidfire with TBS patch + triumph

okay something there is not right. you should have wayyy more range. do you know anyone who you could borrow goggles to test and see if it is your rapidfire module? make sure your vtx antenna is mounted up and away. the further from the quad, the better. and obviously if there are a ton of obstacles it wont go very far.

goggles are fine, among the best in my fpv group (analog)
I am trying to order a immersion rc power meter but it's always out of stock.
on the 2w setup i mounted the lipo bottom the antenna VTX is completely free.

the environment is not easy, its a valley with some building here and there and probably bouncing waves from the cells towers.
maybe the 5.8ghz is used for something else then fpv in my country on in this particular valley.

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..

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..
