After some time 'experimenting' with fixed wing stuff and multirotors, I became tired and found that I wanted to just fly and not mess around with shiz.
so I made this for some reason? idk why, send help

2450kv 6s 5150biblade plus qwod,
toooob2, in short.

updates: tuning required. with this setup I kinda guessed.

Anyone ever consider making the "arms" into winglets? Was thinking that while this wouldn't generate lift per say, it would help to keep the carft stable at higher speeds. Could also help with hangtime as the copters winglets would "slow" its fall.

Its ok... I've dragging my feet too.
Wanted to get into a 4S nano build but thus far i keep finding excuses not to.

how do the 3d pinted brackets do holding the tubes, do they wiggle loose? Did you glue them?

thanks, I feel like this is one of the most obvious ways of going about contemplating a frame but i'll find out soon why fiming rigs use it and racing quads dont haha

aaah, I hadn't thought about the effect that crashing will have on those brackets.. Super curious how it holds up

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..
