This thing only weighs 214g with everything but the battery.I could have shaved a few more grams with a mini or micro camera, but I hate the way they look. The Asgard was replaced from https://rotorbuilds.com/build/4638 free of charge from myairbot.com even though I purchased it from rtf quads. I didn't even send in the bad one. Shoutout for that! Also, I didn't realize it the first time, but there are solder pads on the Asgard, and you don't have to use the jst connectors if you don't want to. Its 362 all up (with battery). It's pictured with RaceKraft 5040's, but I plan to test HQ 5040x3 v1s and all the newest bi-blade props to see which is best for the high kv motors. Thanks for looking!

Update: Since I'm going to be racing this thing, I broke down and added 3 grams of motor wire protection on the arms. = )

I am convinced my scale reads high after seeing this build. You build is exacttly like mine, but with a heavier camera!!!! and yet I am about 10 grams over...."

Have you flown this thing yet?

Just a hover test indoors. Looks like you have longer motor wires and a longer xt60 lead which may account for some of it.

Not the floss, but a decent edit.

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..
