The build I put together is a 90mm Brushless build for around 50 dollar, depending if you bought parts in sale or not. If anyone found parts that are even more cheap than this build id love to hear it, and ill update this page!


This Build is without FPV. If you also would want FPV you could order:

PRICE: 10 Dollars

PRICE: 12$ + 6$ = 18 Dollars

9 Dollars

If you want to go 3s and split escs buy these:

PRICE: 5$ x 4$ = 20 dollars

But you might have the problem that you cant power up the FPV gear.


Update:
This stack will provide a better FC and ESC for a really cheap price, making the total cost around 40 Dollars (without FPV).

PRICE: 21 Dollars


I ended up using the FS-A8S as a receiver but I think this one would also work:

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.

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