Hyperlite Floss 3.0 Lite

Went to my first race a couple of months ago and got bit hard from the racing Bug! After my freestyle rig took a good beat down from the first race, I had to build a race quad that was meant for racing and the abuse it comes with.
Decided on the Hyperlite Floss 3.0 Lite, since it was designed for a 20 x 20 stack and parts were readily available. The frame is super light, but I ended up designing some TPU parts for some initial protection while I learned to run gates.
The 20 x 20 boards are small, but it was still a tight squeeze fitting everything under the canopy.

Since I knew I was going to get passed often, I wanted others to be able to see me as much as possible, so I added LED's to bottom of the arms.

Built it with the hybrid rear arms and got it running on a 6S 1100 mah battery that is small and lighter. The bird flies great, rails corners, and can definitely take a beating!

A beautiful build! I strongly recommend that you get the front arm brace, because it is a lifesaver. It can also look good if you color it well. ;)

Thanks! Might take it out to Alameda Point this weekend for a quick Rip!

Oh? Flying field with the gazebo next to the Douglas Skyhawk-on-a-stick? I might get to see it in action then! From a socially responsible distance, of course...

1st of all, this rig looks SICK. It's amazing how small parts have gotten for racing, your vtx antenna looks HUGE. Just a year ago (maybe a year and a half) that was the smallest circular polarised antenna on the market... now it's like you strapped a refrigerator on your back. Your color coordination, and wire routing are on point.

yeah, this thing is definitely smaller than my freestyle quad. I ordered a 5" frame, but after I built it, I thought they may have sent me a 4" 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..
