Power/weight ratio is the key! Runcam Hybrid 3"3S Komori. Freestyle/all-around great quad.

Hi guys,

I am more of a cinematic freestyle pilot so I like my quads to have long flight times, lots of power and agility.

This 3" quad weights 112 grams without a battery and 186 grams with a 3S 850mah Tattu.

Each motor with an Emax avan mini 3024 props gives approximately 370 grams of thrust at 12amp draw. The 4 motors together can push around 8.5 times the weight of the quad. Other configurations (with 3x4 props) might give more power but the flight times will reduce drastically.

It cruises at 18-20% throttle, and with this rate you can fly it for 10 min no problem doing random bursts every minute. Without the bursts it should fly 2 more minutes. Full throttle freestyle lasts 4 minutes (with instant stop and turn).

Runcam Hybrid on board for really nice HD videos and low latency fpv feed.
The Komori 3" frame is very stiff and there is absolutely no jello in the HD video.

R9MM to fly through trees and concrete without worrying too much, (or TB$ for you extra people :P).

I know the camera is not fully protected, but we are all superb pilots, aren't we?!

Below I will list the parts. Merry Christmas!

Beautiful, but must have been difficult to build with so little space! Not bad for 10 minutes on a 3S with the Emax 1306s. Not bad all! I too would love to see some flight footage.

Thank you! Its not that difficult with the Zeus board. The only problem is that the camera doesn't have much room to move (angle).
The only way for videos is to upload them on youtube and put the links here. I havn't done this. I wish Rotorbuilds could allow videos to upload.

Allowing video uploads to a site directly burdens their servers not to mention the extra hassel of having to ensure the content is within restrictions (no solicitations, etc). Anyway, hope you find a way....And happy flying dude!!!

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..
