Note: the acrobee "full" kit is $120 and includes everything, though only comes w/ 4 batteries. There are cheapest ways to build a whoop (in particular, the "stingerpod" cam is quite pricey), but this is a nice kit for a beginner, as I was. Motors Silver (0615 14,800 kv) is well suited to my tiny apartment. Black (17,400 kv) is tons of fun in larger indoor spaces. Haven't tried gold yet (19,700 kv). Flight times With black motors and batteries charged to 4.2V: ~3:30 of indoor flying brings the batteries to ~3.7V. Still working out times when using HV batteries. Charging to 4.30V (a bit short of full HV 4.35V), I get about another minute (~4:30). FPV cam sturdiness I was worried about the whip antenna breaking, since upside-down crashes typically bend it back. I tried reinforcing it with hot keep reading..

pretty sure it'll fit! a similar build todo Having trouble fitting the Micro Swift. The measurements here may help: Swift dimensions: 19mm tall, 19mm wide, 19mm cam to lens depth, ~11mm case depth Or maybe I should just get the canopy... weight accounting atom mini frame: 10g omnibus fc: 4g? cicada esc: 13g airblade motors: 22.5g (4 x 5.6g) props: 4g? (1 x 1g?) micro swift cam: 5.6g vtx03: 3g xm+ rx: 1.6g tattu 450mah: 42g airblade 600mah: 53g (11g over 450mah) tattu 650mah: 59g (17g over 450mah) Not including tape, heatshrink, etc, best case: dry: 63.7g w/ 450mah: 105.7g w/ 600mah: 116.7g w/ 650mah: 122.7g hd cam feasibility 808#16 cam: 18.97g (7.69g bare, 5.55g battery, 5.73g case) 808 w/ case, no battery: 13.42g runcam keep reading..

a 3", HD-recording quad on the fence: fc: leaning towards the nano over CLRacing F4 (5V BEC is 1.5A v. 1.2A and is filtered, flash instead of SD card, has barometer, F3 vs. F4) vtx: tramp is only ~1g heavier than atx03, probably better QC, and has smartaudio. bigger than the eachine though. props: explore options not actually available yet: frame: waiting for 3" eclair cam: waiting for split v2 RX: FrSky R-XSR. small, light, has all the features. FC: new version of CLRacing F4 coming soon, maybe supports Split better? TODO: does the omnibus support smartaudio?

2" micro HD cam options? seems like split is too wide to fit eclair. mobius is pretty heavy (27g). hm, maybe move to 3"... i hear the dys 2x3x3's are vibrate-y and annoying.

First mini quad build. Goals Learn how to build a quad. Learn how to fly it. Do some freestyle/acro. Priorities (relatively) quiet: 6" long(er) flight times: bigger battery, efficient motors crashability (unibody may be suboptimal, but lifetime warranty is handy) features. I'd like to play with All The Features so I can figure out what I like. Hence the FC with current sensor and OSD, the Tramp that can be configured via OSD and also have an audio-in, and FrSky Rx with telemetry. Eagle 2 for dynamic range and 16:9 aspect ratio to the Aomway Commander (once they're in stock again, grr). Tramp and not Unify because it's SmartAudio-like thing is separate from the audio-in (so I can get audio from the quad) and it's smaller compared to the Unify's that run off vbat. TODO Find Chameleon top plate keep reading..
