1707 motors are overkill on a 3" frame. but who really cares?

How’s the frame holding up. I just got mine and dang the arms have a lot of flex due to the direction of the cut. Was hoping it would be a stiffer frame like my last 3” build.
Seems that all the win 3 frames are the same. I have the stingy which is a solid carbon frame and a lot less flex than this one. I would assume Xhover thought this one through also.

My Win 3 is very stiff. No complaints there. Moved the components to another frame now. But no problems with the frame while I used it.

Cool build. How are the rcx 1707 motors? Thinking of using the 3200 KV version for a 4” build.

The 3900kv are incredibly inefficient. I get 2 minutes on 850mah. Not sure how the 3200kv are tho.

Nice build! Post some more pictures, looks like you have an eye for it.

Thanks. I added a few more pictures. Not my cleanest build. But it turned out good enough for me.

Looks great! How does it fly? Any DVR footage?

It flies great. Max flight time is 2 minutes on 850 mah. I don't have any video yet. Basically done a few test flights so I don't have much exciting video.

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..

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..
