Just in time for MultiGP Nationals in Reno, NV. This design is meant for 4in1 ESCs and micro cams only. Losing weight and decreasing drag was the goal with this frame. Thinner but taller arms should provide better airflow without sacrificing strength. In the event that an arm does get broken only one screw needs to be removed for a swap. Slim but strong, this build comes in at 299g w/o battery.

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad.

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..
