Bannilight build for Sebring 2018. Fairly light weight build and I'm hoping that it will be a good racer.

What size capacitor are you using? (dimmensions and voltage,uf values) That is a perfect place to put it, very nice.

It's a 1000uf 25v. Not sure on the actual dimensions.

Nice build bud. Almost looks too good to race;)

Nice that the 4 in 1 has a BEC

Yeah, I used it to power the flight controller and vtx. FC is powering the camera, and vtx is powering the receiver.

I really like this frame, but I'm kind of spooked about the motor protection. What do you think? Is it a reasonable worry to have?

The arm extends out in front of the motors to protect from frontal impacts. So if you are using it for racing you are covered from the majority of impacts. The 5mm arms also help in that regard.

Generally hitting anything at the angle where you would hit the side of a motor is rare, i think for a lightweight frame it is more than adequate.

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..
