TinyV - Prototype

I always loved V-Tails!
Finding a modern toothpick V-tail frame is not easy..

So this is my first custom tootpick frame!! :grinning:

Design details:
-COG at propeller plane.
-Compact vertical weight destribution
-Prop free FPV view
-Flight time (2S 450); XXX min (will be updated after maiden on saturday)
-Frame weight: Roughly 16g
-Dry weight: 65g
-AUW (2S 450): 93g

Some small improvements to the frame will be made before I release the design. It should also loose some 10g, which I do not think is possible with a 16x16 stack - I will considder AIO boards instead.
The final version may end up being a 3" version. I think some 1204 motors and 3" props will land at a better weight for the props than this 2.5" version.

it's oddly attractive ;)
are the flight characteristics notably different with such 'tail'?
will you update the frame for it not to land on the props?
very nice build and again... interesting concept!

I still didn't fly this one because i used to long bolts for the motors.. Waiting for New motors xD
But My 3" flies significantly different. It is clearly more snappy and locked in yaw.

The propellers does not hit the ground, but it requires a Hard surface to take of.. This is the 1. Prototype so there will be an update.

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. 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..
