Hi there!

as i was really annoyed with noise 2,5" - 3" drones and 4s lipos, i wanted to build something very different. A very small 2,5" drone using a 2s setup that still provides incredible thrust and can be easily freestyled. Using 2s, it is so silent that you can easily fly it at a park where there might be other people (without annoying them).

My name is Nic, and i design frames for fun and personal projects. Every project goes through 4 phases: Ideation, Design, Building, Flying & Improving. I document what i do on my Youtube channel eyefly tinkerings.

Design:

Building / Setup:

Flight:
will follow soon!

The frame just weights 14,5g in total, so allows for a light-weight build.

Design files are available on Thingiverse - i'd love to see you build your own! https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4743636

I also designed a 3" version of this to build a sub250g freestyle quad including a naked GoPro. A seperate build will follow soon.

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..
