This is My Moka gravity frame. Really solid, a bit complicate to mount as you cannot take it apart complety without removing the motor from the ESCs

Wow really interesting frame design! How do the arms lock in? It would be cool if they had a 6-7" prop version.

Those props are 6" and you can put 7" without any problem. About the arms, there is a small hole in the frame thas allow you to block them with a zip tide or similar, but because the motor rotation are inverted they stay full open anyway. This advantage (and disaventage) of not using physical lock is that the arms folde in case of crash, so they won't brake (but also you have to do a "walk of shame"). Here a video about how reversed motor lock the arms (this is the 3inch version of the frame but the principale is the same)

Imho it needs 2508 1700kv and 7 in . other than that Super Chill

main issue with the 7 inch is that it will not fold as nicely (props going to be out of the frame). about the motor size i followed the spec advice by mokaframe. i suspect bigger motor to be too much exposed. with this config the quad is really responsive and ready for freestyle with about 7 mins flight (with 1500mah)

Every quad you build is super responsive till you build a better one then you will wonder why you bothered with the old one.

That's an insanely cool build!!!!! Man am I ever glad that frame isn't $100, I would actually buy that. What a complex and detailed build, that must be SO satisfying to fly. You have inspired me, i'm sure (from your pics) that this is an advanced build, and i'm gonna dive in.

Thank you very much Jodie! The build itself is challenging because you need to double check everything (arms open and arms close) but with that in mind it is as a usual build. The Moka team did a really good job on this frame and there is plenty of space to be creatif. The only issue with this frame is that as soon as you solder the motor it get harder to access the flight controller because you cannot totally remove the side of the frame.

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..
