Killbot Mk I - LFH6 Refit

I'd started in on my Killbot project as an exploration in performant minimalism, how to get the most quad <250g. Flying for 20 minutes is great and all, but what's the point when it's just Runcam Hybrid footage? The quad was collecting dust as I'd turned my attention to development of the LoFat Hero 6, and decided it was time to circle back and combine the two projects...

So here it is. The 2s 18650 powered Killbot Mk I, with a pod for the LFH6. The weight comes in over 250g (as expected, I hadn't designed for this configuration) and it's not the most competent freestyler, but it glides along easy and smooth for 12+ minutes at a time.

It might be a little while before I finish up and realease the Killbot design, but more on the LoFat Hero 6 can be found at:

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..
