I've had a few ask for me to post some quads together and I always forget to get sone together In single photos., Here's a few ranging from small 66mm size to 1400mm and prices ranging from 100.00 to 15,000.00 (not including camera). It's an ever changing good time of gear always though. I've also included a few photos of the larger multirotors and wings that pay the bills. I know it's not the conventional post so I'll remove it if it's not okay.

"...Mini quads are for fun and stress relief..." Oh man, it does look like you have a really stressed life! Lol!

When flying an Alta8 with a 45,000.00 Alexa Mini camera setup a couple hundred dollar mini quad in Acro mode definatly is stress relief.

I'm genuinely confused... just exactly what does one do with that many quads/wings/multi rotors?

Charles Hidalgo   Oct 29, 2017 

The wings and big multirotors are for my Data mapping,, NDVI surveying, thermal inspection, AP film/photography, and search and rescue all which I get paid to do. .Mini quads are for fun and stress relief. Hope that clears things up.

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..
