This was my very first build just over a year ago. I can remember being intimidated with the soldering even with the large spaced out pads.

First flight with the Tiny2.

Here are some of the improvements: Higher quality EMAX ECO 2306 1700kv motors Foxeer's top-of-the-line Falkor mini camera Eachine 25mw-1000mw Leaf VTX with microphone Tools This..
