Um er , I know its not a quad.
It actually works , sort of, not much good in dirt and i have some work to do on power delivery .
But so far i have foward reverse and with a bit o resource remap nad mixing in the remote i have steering coupled with yaw.
This is a work in progress .

I have this fear that without gear reduction you will need a very low kv. Maybe some of the old 2212's from the DJI phantom aftermarket era motors? The ones for 9 and 10 inch props, that come in the 700kv range? I have no idea how low you need to go, what kv are you running? How do they perform? also: I would start with the smallest tires possible just to keep the torque load on the motor low (in hopes that it will work at all). Does it drive on a smooth surface? Off road?

Hi , It motivates as is , but yes different motors or a planetary gear system would be better . But i have to do some mixing and what knot to bring it under control , and yes i will post a crash real . but here are some pics of my drone motor powered crawler (2212 950kv).

I'm just building a similar thing with 6 wheels, drone motors in the wheels but I build a planetary gearbox in the wheels for bigger torque and lower speed :D https://i.imgur.com/DMrTwlW.png

Are you familiar with swapping ball-bearings and bells? Our motors are not made for this, but anyway cool build.

Please tell me that at some point, you'll make a buggy that can transform into a quad and back!

So cool man! I wanna see video! Even if it's performance is bad, or has problems, pleaase show us!!!!!!

I see some bent motor axles in your near future.

Good lord. You really can't be safely left alone, can you? Look what you've gone and done now?! Absolutely brilliant.

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..
