Rebuilt the RotoriousFPV BandoRacer 4" Basher with some decent hardware
good riddance to those nasty Eachine Tyro 1607 motors and noisy Racerstar AIO FC
Hoping to get rid of a wierd judder when coming off the throttle. This was happening with both the 1407 and 1607 motors.

These motors feel extremely well put together. They spooled up super quiet and silky on the bench. Btw the bearing size for this motor is 7x3x3
Prop choice is a bit limiting as all the t-mount 4" props are low pitched -- Gemfan's 4023 tri and 4025 biblade and HQprop's 4x2 tri and 4x2.5 bi

This will be my first F7 flight controller. All set up, the CPU usage sits under 5% on the bench.

Overall change was a loss of 4 grams, not a bad weight. Definitely not an ultralight 4" racer. This will be a perfect freestyler.

Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..

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..
