Lawn Dart v2 [RETIRED]

Tried to spend dollars on an Atom v3 pro kit but nope, they apparently all got sent back to RotorX due to an issue when running 4s. Built this instead for even more dollars.

FPV Transmitter, PDB, and OSD are all part of the TBS Powercube Elite Bundle listed under FC.

Wanted to use a RunCam Eagle that I already had but the lens stuck out the front of the mount, even after modifying the rubber camera mounts. Popped on Amazon and saw that I could get a Foxeer Monster same day delivered. Done.

Spares are in Misc. I'll probably pick up another motor and esc ASAP just in case.

Yes, my soldering sucks.
Yes, my props aren't tightened down in that picture.
Yes, I wish I bought the frame with the orange anodizing.

TODO:
Pass HAM license test to be legal with FPV. Boom. Passed both Tech and General.
Figure out where to mount the battery connector to keep it safe.
Get some self fusing tape to lock the ESCs down.
Crash it a bunch.

How did you end up mOunting the Foxeer Monster v2? i heard it was too wide.

I trimmed the rubber mount with a hobby knife. It's a snug fit. Figured I could just 3d print a replacement mount if it didn't work out.

Where did you finally mount the battery connector to keep it safe ?

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..
