Stay tuned to this page as I am going to try out EmuFlight on this build!

Check out my full video review on this build:

1s 3-inch Toothpick aka Babytooth is freaking awesomely fun! It is also more economical in the long run!

I decided to use BetaFPV 1103 15,000kv brushless motors which is more available in Singapore. For normal cruising, it only requires 30 to 40% throttle. After flying 3 packs of GNB LiHv 520mAh, the motors remained cool!

The frame I used is Sanchez Air 2mm thickness which is light enough for 1s build. It requires only 3 long m2 screws leaving a space behind for USB port so that I do not need to invert the whoop board.

Since I do not need to invert the whoop board, I decided to use iFlight 1s whoop board. For the price, this whoop board set contains FC F411 and a vtx up to 50mw with u.fl antenna. Since it does not have in-built receiver, I installed xm+ and paired with 50mw for a 1s mid-range flight.

Currently, I'm still using ph2.0 and is planning to upgrade to xt30 to have lesser voltage sag.

Check out my full flight using BetaFlight 3.5.7 and everything defaults! It wobbles a lot so I highly recommend using KababFPV PID tuning available on FPVcycle!

Following video, I am testing BetaFlight 3.5.7 defaults vs tuning by KababFPV which is available in FPVcycle website:
https://fpvcycle.com/products/fpvcycle-babytooth-frame-choose-your-thickness

Overall, I am still not really happy with the tuning mainly because of the components that I used are very different from what FPVcycle recommends. Stay tuned as I test this build in EmuFlight!

nice build m8, have almost the same parts on way to me, im thinking about getting rid of motor connectors, how much weight can i loose with that, and also if its worth it, hope i will not mess it

I am thinking of changing to XT30 which is more assessible for me.

I think there is something happening with toothpicks that i'm not hip too, what is the deal with the thread coming out of your prop screw holes?
This is the second build i've seen with something like this...

To keep the quad light, we do not use screws to secure our props. We 'floss' our props to create additional tightening of our props with screws. You can check out Mr ShutterBug video on how he floss his props:

P.S. I am using threads instead of floss as I do not floss my teeth. Think Dentist KababFPV will hunt me down. LOL!

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..
