Hi all, Swoped out the gemfans for some HQ durable 7 x 4.5 Tri Bi blades,Small overall improvement. Then some HQ durable 4.5 Bi Blades. Much smoother , less jellow no bobbles Sounds Meaner , motors just slightly worm , better flight times, No down sides.Just got to love that GROWL.

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..
