The purpose of this build is to be lightweight and fly well. Supposed to replace my Tinyhawk 2 Freestyle in the fleet. something I can fly around my house, from inside my house, in the winter and rip parks with in the summer. I went with the ultra light VTX and seperate onboard DVR, that way if I want to cut weight I can pull the DVR and if I want to record some flights I can pop it back in, since its plug and play.

I have 3s 450's that I will mainly fly, however the plan is to also reuse my 2s gnb 450s from the TH2FS for some more chill flights.

11/28/20: The Latest Flight is the current itteration, about 100 or so packs, 2 arms, 2 top plates, a ton of props, a camera, a vtx, and 1 motor in. Flying great am im driving it hard. Will be upgrading to Ghost in the next few weeks.

11/27 switched to the NamelessRC D400 VTX/dvr combo. Fits better and less weight overall. Also added arm braces to keep them from breaking. AUW is about the same.

as of 11/20 I have switched to the Foxeer Toothless2 Starlight. Not becuase I didnt like the runcam, but because I broke the runcam.

I will say, the runcam Pheonix2 nano had the worst wire harness I have ever seen on a camera. Hard plasitc wires, super thin, very fragile. Also, the lens was WAY to long, stuck out of the canopy, which led to its ultimate demise.

FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..
