My 1st 5" quad build. It's also the first I've seen using the Spidey FPV frame. Running on 4S


Quad is running, will maiden soon!


I can't move it to complete until a I upload a pic of it. But I got to maiden it today, and this thing is awesome! However, I managed to break an arm on my 2nd battery. New arms are on their way!

Update 3

New arm is on, and pic added . Now I just need some good weather to rip

Update 4

Finally got to fly! Again, it flies awesome and is extremely lightweight and powerful. Maybe too powerful... I managed to find a phantom limb again and broke the frame. The bottom plate needs to be replaced. Instead, I'm going with a full frame transplant into something else. 2 Flights with 2 broken pieces isn't a great track record :-\ I have a frame coming that I just realized is a Mode 2 Ghost knock off. It was $26, so we'll see how it does

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
