Summer is leaving and winter season is coming quick. Sometimes 2S just isn’t enough. Here’s a 2.5”-3” Doberman mini using all the new stuff from RunCam and EMax.

Using the Emax F3 Magnum Mini and the RunCam Swift Micro with Piggyback VTX made this build really fast.
I chose a 3-4s machine with 1106 4500kv motors because I wanted to fly this outside as well as in gyms or indoor arenas.

Using a 450mah 4S, you can either top or bottom mount. You decide.

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..
