I have been playing with the idea of building a Cinawhoops style kwad for some time now. Finally decided to do the Geyser last year but could decide on components for a while. This has been a long drawn out build for me but it flies so great.

So you don't mind the weight of those big a$$ motors on those teensy props? The battery too, she on that "Oh lawd, she comin'" weight class. Does she slide wide in turns? I guess my real question is: Have you flown it indoors?

I have flown a little indoors still feeling it out and getting rates dialled. It can turn on a dime zero slide out unless thats what Im trying to do with it. The batteries dont seem to mind so far. I get around 3:50 with a hero6 on a 1100 6S battery. The larger motors or Big A$$ Motors as you call them help with throttle managment and keeping a solid elevation since they have so much inertia they also help give back the yaw athoriy you loose from ducts.

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..
