My first attempt at building a light weight racing quad. Was aiming for a dry weight of 250g, but ended up with 280g. I'm pretty sure I could reduce it by another 10-15g or so by removing some of the niceties, e.g. capacitor, buzzer, wire mesh etc... and replacing the hardware with titanium ones, but I'll live with this for now. :)

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..
