Hello!

I've been wanting to build an extra small brushless quad for a while now, but it's just been too expensive. As it turns out, I just needed to look a little smaller. This frame is awesome (though a little frustrating to take apart). Because of it's size and bumpers, it reminds me of a Tiny Whoop without the lack of power.

Enjoy the build!

Looks great! How difficult was it to solder all those tiny wires?

Thanks! It actually the soldering itself wasn't much of an issue (except on those tiny motors wires where I had to scrape off the enamel and stuff), it was mostly just getting the wires to fit. I ended up having to de/resolder the wires one each ESC so they could press up closer to the corners of the stack. Things really start to get crowded when you go this small

Yeah it was a pain to make sure I didn't accidentally cut the wire itself. The props give me plenty of power but they are pretty loud, I'm looking forward to printing a cutter so I can try out the apparently quieter cut down ones.

Have fun with your motors! Amazing how brushless is able to compete with brushed now in terms of size

V1 had several issues and most reviewers declared it an utter failure. Did Topsky fix the issues and are these worth buying? Let's find out. On paper this sounded like a wonderful new goggle. Unfortunately we were let down. The displays exhibited ghosting, the..

The ThinkTank FPV Airport Helipak is the premier travel bag for FPV enthusiasts. I've taken this bag across the country and around the world, and I really can't imagine a better pack for the job. It's huge. It's the size of a carry-on luggage, and it's designed specifically for FPV. It offers customizable compartments that can store a handful of quads, a transmitter or two, a couple sets of goggles,..
