I personally reinforce the 12 struts that attach the ducts to the motor mount. This is by far the weakest part of this frame and this simple reinforcement will make it last a lot longer.
FX798T FPV Setup
This 600tvl Camera produces beautiful colors in daylight and handles low light better than any other micro fpv setup I've found. Choose between a right-hand circular polarized antenna or a simple but slightly more durable dipole antenna. The vtx is 25mw.
Upgraded Battery Pigtail
As with all BeeBrains this aircraft has an upgraded battery pigtail for much better energy transfer. No need to solder anything new onto this aircraft.
10° Camera Mount installed
This is the perfect angle for both fast-forward flight as well as slow manuvering thru dense treetops. It is still low enough to look down between the ducts to drop thru small slots or gaps.
As usual, this aircraft comes with the Tiny Whoop Standard - The Mylipo 205mah 1S pack. But I'm also throwing in this little 150mah Mylipo as well. This will give you a shorter flight time but more initial punch. You can really feel the decrease in weight.
As I built these beautiful aircraft I initialed and numbered the first 50 builds.
A Note About Micro Acro Flight
Acro flight on the micro level feels different than acro flight in a miniquad. These are the most powerful 6mm motors you can get, but they do not have the power of the much larger brushless motors. In the steep dives in the video above, you'll notice I ease out of the dive gently rather than just try to stop on a dime. flips and rolls can be caught in a hover but will flow and feel much better if caught in forward movement. It's a different kind of finesse than miniquad pilots are used to but it's at least as much fun in my opinion. Flight times will be shorter than what you're used to too - around 2 to 3 minutes with the standard 205mah battery - but it's worth the trade for the amazing performance. You're gonna love it!
About the price - You could buy parts to make this build for about $145 bucks. I highly encourage it! This option is for those that want a precision-built aircraft that's ready to set up and bind. My charge for building each one is 35 bucks which feels fair to me. I put well over 35 bucks worth of love into each one!
To get the most out of these motors I recommend you break them in by hovering for 10 minutes of flight time. Then go nuts.
