First KISS FC and top mount build, turned out pretty clean with 4 in 1 and stackable vtx. Forgot to order a nice stubby antenna so I threw an old trusty triumph on, may swap to something more aesthetically pleasing later.

Got any pictures with a battery installed? Waiting for restock!

Also, where did you get the green TPU cover? I only see two available colors: Blue/White and Red/White...

I printed my own :) If you do not have a printer, Chris over at www.phx-3d.com should be able to print any color you want!

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..

Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
