So I still have 0.17g left for a nice looking sticker.
My first try on sub 250g long range fixed wing. Its freezing cold right now so no maiden yet, thinking to put a higher kv motor for a bit faster on 2s.

This is awesome. I've been wanting to build a wing for a while and the small size is a great bonus. Do you think something like this would be suitable for a person who only has experience with quads? Also what kinds of flight times are you thinking it might be capable of? Would you think an airframe like this would still fly ok with more weight? I'm thinking 3s 18650 and maybe split style camera so at least 340g? Once you get a chance to fly make sure to put up a video.

I've actually just flown quad for a couple of months and this is my first fixed wing build, but imo something with larger wing span slow flying would better for beginner, small wing like dart250g or nano goblin need to fly fast. You should get better answer in dart rcgroups thread.

I actually think this small wing is perfect for someone who is already flying FPV quads. I started flying wings year ago (coming from quads) and I wished someone recommended me small sub250g back then, instead I built 900mm AR Wing and while I don't mind, I know now a sub250g agile wing would've been a better option. I now have 2x Nano Goblin and 1x ZOHD Dart250. Nano Goblin is little bit lighter than Dart250 but either way you should have no problem to keep in the air for 1 hour with 3S 18650, and 340g weight as you suggest is absolutely no problem at all on 3S. My Dart250g is 350g and it's a rocket on 3S :

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..
