PiroflipRC Hyperfloss 4" Ultralite build.
Was REALLY hoping to get this sub 150g, but just wasn't meant to be.. Have swapped out for a Runcam Swift Micro, and some lighter props but not able to break 150g with this one... The grip this thing has is insane, it is literally point and shoot, it stops and turns on a dime, there is ZERO slide, no matter how hard you pull.

I like how you shrink wrapped the braid of motor wires, looks really clean.

Thanks! something I decided to try on my 3" and came out really well. That's my new method for at least some kind of motor wire protection on 4in1 builds.

Nice build, so clean! Have you test hovered those tri-blades yet? I found my 1407-3800kv motors got too hot to fly with Racekraft tri blades.

I'm curious about this as well. I'll be doing a 1407 3600kv 4" build and I think I'd be safest with DAL 4045 bi-blades, but I wonder if there's a good tri out there.

What lipo are you planning to use?

Venom 4s 1000Mah 50c, or maybe even an 850mah. Biggest capacity I can get that's close to or under 100g.

I've been using 850mah packs and really like them. The 1000 feel a little heavy to me.

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..

In late 2019 DJI made inroads into the FPV scene with their remarkable low-latency digital system. It gave us a 720p video feed with latency on-par with the status quo, analog video. Traditionally we've used analog video systems for low-latency video, but the video quality is far from ideal. It's a trade-off we've been willing to accept for the control. Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
