Very nice looking. Someone just provided feedback on how this frame may be better on 16xx motors. And bam...I found yours right after. A few questions...
What is the total weight without batteries?
Which batteries and props are you running?
What is the flight times you are getting?
Thanks, looking to build one soon, and want to pick the best components for best flight time on freestyle.

I'm 223 grams pre battery. Mostly use the RDQ 650 mAh, have been getting between 2 and 3 minutes flight time but I think that's mostly because of my props. I've been usin Avan 3060's. If you stuck to the gemfan 3028's you'll probably get closer to 3-4 minute flight time instead.

Also, these 1606's are nasty. My thrust to weight ratio is stupid. I flick the stick 60-70% and I'm 150 feet in the air. I could shove a 1000mah battery on the top of this and be flying no problems. In fact, I have a 1500mah that I use for my goggles. Maybe I should go try that...

In the description I wrote "Just a mockup to run weight numbers." Sorry if that was confusing, but I'm just writing out a build that I'm planning on purchasing and assembling. If I decide to build it, I will post pictures.

Than why post it as a build and not a mockup?

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..
