This is my very first build called The Training Quad, because I will crash and learn with this quad. This is my training quad.
Because it is a "Training Quad" I mostly used cloned parts to save money. I will build a full legit original parts quad, once I feel more comfortable flying.

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.
