Built to go fast... some day. It looks like crap and probably will crash and burn but it has been a fun project to bring together. Petg is ok for its rigidity but mega fragile so I wont be doing anything but flying in a straight line. :)
Shout out to Dave C for making the print files. I dont know how to model but I love to build. This project has been super fun!

Currently working on getting past the hovering stage.
Hovered today (5/19/20), it flew like a tank, but with a 4s 1000mAh it probably weighs more than some of my 5 inch builds. That being said, once it gets moving forward I think we might get to see some rather high numbers :).

Going to run on 4s for a while to maybe do a bit of tuning and then its off to 5s and 6s to really push it to its limits. 150mph or bust! (probably 99mph though)....

It flies!!! Terribly... but it flies! Ran it on 4s and it accelerates really slow, but with 6s I think it might just get some more SPEED


Tried it on 6s. It flew one pack on some slow props and then died the next pack. I think we are pretty much done with the micro speed category but I'm working on finding a way to build this as a 5 inch version. Here is the video :)

Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage..

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..
