Been listening to a bunch of Pink Guy lately.

-I wanted a top mount battery, TP3 type kwad that was stupid cheap to maintain.
Lots of things going on here.
-Half a dozen 3d prints from unrelated projects found on thingiverse. Used scaling in cura to get them the sizes i needed.
-Running F3 performance edition 4.1.1 with 48khz Jesc and overclocked to 112mhz.
-Solid pin PH2.0 harness.
-Frame is printed with layers of PLA and TPU. 3 thin layers of TPU with 2 larger layers of PLA. Like a Big Mac.
-Since TPU and PLA have the same melting temperature, they will fuse together if you print slightly hot, with no cooling fan.
-Durability testing (daughter throwing frames against hard wood floors), shows that the TPU layered frames break less than straight PLA.
-59 grams dry.
-9500kv motors are on a 80% throttle limit/scale.
-3:30 minutes of freestyle flying on 450 2s.
-Been running 1104s, 3" props on 5a escs for months now. Haven't killed any of my 3 boards.

I love this hobby.
Thank you Dave_C
Thank you Thunkar

I was waiting on for someone to do soemthing like this and myy god it looks pretty. I prefer top mount on my stuff cause i fly over concrete and my batteries last a few packs before getting dented severely.

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..
