Can you recommend a set of goggles and rc controller? Can i go all DJI or would you go with something different?
This is going to be my first build

I don't usually do react style content, but here's my reaction video to Bardwell's reaction video Why Rotor Riot Rampage is so "Overpriced" (ft. Botgrinder & Grim Reaper)

Good day. Admirable. I would like to kindly ask you for the file for your frame.
Inav 7.1 has already solved frame removal and non-standard handling of the drone such as max. throttle in navigation modes. I also had problems with withdrawals. Try inav 7.1 and see for yourself that it works. Thank you very much in advance.

dang, this is clean!!! do you have any flight videos? curious if you think those 1404's are powerful enough for this size.

powerfull enough to follow an nano drak wing cruising at 65km/h

cool!....
I have same frame with different motors :)

Nice, they look like fun little quads. For whatever reason I tend to ignore 3S, and am looking to build a 4S drone on the AlfaRC Apex 2.5" frame. Should be quite a blast.

good luck! I had old boy 2" and 4S... I am using it long time from 2021!

Hey man. Just bought most of the parts to do the build. What radio and goggles can i use for this? Also, the DJI parts, did you install just the transmission module or the whole O3 Air unit? Will let you know how the build goes

derV   5 days ago 

To fly it FPV you will need to build it with a full O3.
As for a transmitter to use: Any expressLRS radio will bind to the receiver you ordered. I personally use an X-lite with an expressLRS module but for convenience I would suggest the Jumper T20 (good build quality for the price, works for thumbers and pinches) or about any one of radiomasters lineup.

My explorer LR and Rekon5 are my favorite quads. Cant wait to purchase the Rekon250!

Do you glue the carbon tubes into the 3d printed parts or is it a friction fit.

very random thought that came up in my mind but have you tried inducing slight tension on those supporting diagonal pieces? Like have a slight bend so that the whole drone is in a constant state of tension - thus becoming a little more rigid. I don't know if it'll hold up better but when I was working with carbon fiber tubes for micro drones, one of the first designs utilized carbon fiber rods that were in parallel of each other but bent slightly at the tips. That was a good design but the limitation was 3D printing parts isn't good for structural parts.

Thank for your comment.
As you can see in the CAD picture, the insertion ends of the diagonal (vertical) plates to the horizontal plate are slightly shorter than the depth of the slot. Therefore, I believe that when secured with screws, the diagonal (vertical) plates will have sufficient tension for the frame strength. Anyway, carbon plates are very strong against the force parallel to them, even if they are thin.

I was passing by and I thought that Neato was really good for its time.

scirocco commented on a Build, FPV Toothpick Drone - Brushed (Frame Dead Cat)   9 days ago  

Have to try 2S 1020 or 1023motors with 3" (75mm) propellers! Let's go to build it! :)
something like this : https://rotorbuilds.com/build/27253

Bro cooked and made engineering art. That is a beautiful frame my guy and even more impressive blackbox charts. Looking forward to seeing flights!

haha, yeah it does. After coil rewinding

idiotsniff   10 days ago 

Did you rewind with single wire winding? How many turn are on that motor? Where did you get the wire? What gauge? Thanks mate.

Jodie Froster commented on a Build, AOS 5 V5   12 days ago  

Super clean build!
Less zip than your 3.5? Are you running the 1750kv version of those motors?

RedFrog   12 days ago 

Yeah - I was also with some 5.1x2.5 props so loads of headroom there.

Jodie Froster   11 days ago 

The 1950's would make you SUBSTANTIALLY faster than the 3.5. Honestly a different class of fast. It will make you think that spaces that are appropriate for the 3.5" are WAY to small for the 5"

RedFrog   11 days ago 

Ha - I am interested in testing all this tbh. Still very new to the hobby and I assumed that you could match prop pitch to the kv for max thrust - which I linked more to stator size in my head. I have just ordered a set of 2020kv with an AOS5R frame - because of course I needed one :D . I can see myself adding some of those racewire boards and test different motor configs on both drones :)

ChrisHarmon1 commented on a Build, Neonman   11 days ago  

Clean build, the weight would be my only concern. Those motors are great for freestyle builds, but you want the lightest everything for 1s 18650 builds as they tend to be heavy from get go. The lightest 1202.5 motors I have found are the flywoo with the fractal(happymodel) coming in a very close second and having curved magnets, though I'm not sure how much they help.I ensured motor wire length was the same when comparing weights. I'm a fan of all things Fractal, but the wingman frame is heavier than I'd like. The Walksnail Nano you are running is the same VTX as their 1s lite, so you can remove the metal case and drop quite a bit of weight, though it will heat up faster when not airborne so you'll want to power it down while locking satellites as Dom suggested. The camera is also the same as the 1s lite, but has a heavier case and longer mipi cable, good news here is it bolts on without printing an adapter. Speaking of hardware, some could potentially be replaced by Nylon, PEEK, Titanium or aluminum depeneding on how far you wish you go literally and financially.

Second look, it seems VTX is decased. The metal CPU lid comes off fairly easily with a razor blade carefully wedged between and saves at least 1.5g.
