Been looking round here and a few other places with the thought of putting together a self build however much of the talk is focused around FPV & Racing drones (fair enough, looks like a lot of fun) however I’m after something a bit different.
I’m looking for something that will slot in under 1kg, but it doesn’t need to fast, I’d rather fly something with larger more efficient props (9" ish) but all my searches bring up frames for smaller FPV racing.
If anyone has recommendations, or just wants to throw some better search terms out there, then I’d be very grateful.
Thats a good shout, will definitely consider it. I’m interested in learning to spec one out myself as well though as part of the process so will pursue both avenues in parallel and if it all goes to pot look at getting a second hand system.
If you have access to a 3D printer, have a look at the T4 project on thingiverse.
I’ve built an 8 inch version and it’s probably not the most robust quad in the world, but as a testing and development platform for testing various FC/GNSS/ESC/CAM/VTX combos, it is excellent.
