My latest Quad build is a 2s 2.5” Nano Quad ‘The Golden Snitch’

Basically a flying Naked Caddx Vista

I’ve been testing different motor options over the last few days and have one more test to try before I show you pictures and give you the details of this collaboration build

We’ve had high winds for the last few days, not ideal for testing a tiny quad like this

I love this quad. I would like to build my first quad on my own. I think it will be similar to this nice quad. :-)
Thank you

Would you use a 1303 motor with this frame?

Yes but the secret of this build is the lightest components possible. I'm using a Amaxinno 1303 Motors on my next build a 3" Phantom ;-)

Incredible little quad. And I see some impressive weight savings.

What kind of battery connector is that? I thought these motors would draw about 5 amps each, so I thought you would need an XT30. Is this connector enough for the amp draw?

how did you fit a 20mm FC, did you drill holes in the frame?
Did you do any other modifications in the carbon fiber?

Did you custom make that blue antenna mount? What is it?

The connector is a BetaFPV BT2.0
The board is only rated to 15a
Watch this video :- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WtqeLDUJ0yk&t=3s
I have all the power I need with this connector on this setup ;-) do you see any Lag ?
I drilled 20x20 holes in the GepRC Phantom Bottom Plate
The Antenna mount is just a cable tie with a piece of shrink wrap
Its a cracking little quad to fly and I highly recommend you build one.

Thank you, it ties in nicely with my logo ;-)

His is very nice. How long is the flight time?

You can see what the flight time is fast cruising in this Video :- https://www.instagram.com/p/CFKLo0aHcrA/

Looks good, maybe a little more tuning and rpm filtering is enabled?

This is the stock BF 4.2 Tune, and I've been having so much fun with it that for once I haven't even touched the tune ;-)

Nice build. I just tried same props on my 2s quad with 7500kv motors and noticed these are very efficient with tons of thrust low to mid-throttle, but at high throttle it doesn't see to provide thrust given high current draw. What kind of hover current do you get and max current? My 128g AUW 2s650 with 1104 7500KV motors draws 4.2A in hover and max 19A (but I limit throttle endpoint to 80%).

I'm averaging 5 / 5.5 amps over a 4 minute Hard Rip ;-) I'll check the Hover and Max Amps and get back to you.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
