Inspired by our man Stew, the storm hawk. 350g without the battery, a little heavy but flies amazing. The torque of the 2207 2300kv is a great match for RK5051 props. The split level makes for an unusually quiet 5 inch racer. Addressable led strips in the back.

Any particular reason you went with 2300kv instead of 2550kv? I'm trying to decide which to choose.

The 2300kv are efficient.

Thank you! I decided to go for the 2550kvs because I read the actual kv is a bit lower.

I would have if I had known about it at the time.

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..

Now we've got the best of both worlds and what..
