DRL Practice Spec

The practice rig was invented, when the necessity for a large 7" basher was needed for training for DRL season 4. Its build like a tank, 6mm thick carbon arms, which are also 25mm wide. 3mm thick plates and no cut outs for the rest of the pieces. Its built to last, and to bash. If you want a rig, that you wont ever break, and never have to worry about. This is the choice for you. Maybe you're learning how to fly, trying to get that new trick down, or just want to do lap after lap after pack after pack at the local race track. But you're sick of breaking those skinny little race frame arms. Pick yourself up a Practice Rig, and you'll always have at least one quad at the end of the day still flying. This one.

Spec requirements:

  • Frame
  • Motors (1380kv)
  • Props
  • Battery

Spec Recommendations:

  • FC
  • ESC
  • RX
  • VTX
  • Antennas

Other:

  • No more than 20g of 3D printed material

5s 2200mah: The larger battery helps you get as much flight time as possible. You can now full throttle for 5minutes straight. Squeezing the most practice time out of your time at the field.

7" props: Helps get those longer flight times, also thats what we race on DRL with the R4

Hobbywing G3 ESC+FC Stack: This rig is suppose to be SUPER SOLID. This stack can take a beating and keep on ripping.

Hey Sky,
Is 1250Kv or 1380kv the right spec to build to?

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..
