SkyRyder is a new line Quad66 of frames optimized for 1-2 S builds with zip tie canopies. The form factor is super compact and works best with regular size AIO whoop board with built in RX or VTX. The idea here is to really balance small space performance with daily flyer robustness.

The frames are available from my Armattan store:

The oversize "Toothpick" boards and 16 x 16 stacks may be a little too tight especially with external RX and VTX. For these 2-3 S builds I am working on a WarPig line (updated versions of the 110 and 120).

This build uses the 1.5 mm version of the SkyRyder 114 (aprox 2.6 gm) built up with the Betafpv F4 1S baord with built in Frsky reciver. The motors are Geprc 1102 14000kv and I fly it on 450 mah 1S with 65 mm Whocares press on props. A 2 mm thick version of the frame is also available if you prioritize durability.

Dry weight aprox 25 gm
AUW aprox 38 gm

On 24 vs 48 khz on this build I am not seeing a meaningful difference in efficiency. There is however a noticeable difference in flight performance. I feel that 24 hkz has generates more thrust but is a little more prone to mid throttle oscillation. On 48 khz power is less but the response is smoother so that the quad is easier to fly.

3 - 3.5 min fairly agressive, about 5 when my son is just cruising

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..
