Just got my new 3D Printer and had some spare quad parts - time to have some fun ;). This is my first toothpick build, and was a bit challenging to get the mishmosh of parts to all fit together nicely in the stack. The 3d printed frame, canopy, and mounting plate had to be tweaked as well (glad I had a Dremel..lol) Nice to know now I can always reprint the frame if I crash. ;p It was pretty cheap to build, and it flies great. All up weight without battery is 51.3 grams..not to shabby...I'll upload some footage shortly... :D

I may look at another material if it doesnt hold up..but its pretty strong. It took 3 hours to print, but the finish is great. ;)

Nice work! I recently finished a similar build myself, and have been having a blast flying it.

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..

When the FatShark HDOs hit the market in 2018 the FPV community rejoiced for the new Sony OLED displays. While they lacked further upgrades like an updated DVR and power button they were still a market success. With the 2019 announcement of the Orqa FPV.One the community finally had a potential HDO killer on the horizon. With only weeks before the release of the Orqa FPV.One Skyzone came out of left..
