I wanted to get more flight time from my 1s batteries. My wife loves it because its pretty much silent outside of 3-4 meters. The set of 0802 motors I was going to use has wires that are just too short. These 0702's barely reach this fc's plugs. Side mounted pins would be more forgiving.
tinyhawk ii led stuffed in there for good measure

My batteries are pretty old and worn, but i would say im getting maybe another 20-30% flght time.

All my other drones it takes a some throttle to get liftoff. Just a tiny bit of throttle on this and you are in the air.

Great looking little Kwad! I have a couple of these frames on order for future 1S builds. Can't wait to try one out.

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..
