tiny tiny HD 1080p 60fps!

the moment I saw the caddx turtle announcement i knew i wanted to build a tiny fullHD quad.

Here it is, 69g before battery! This thing has no camera protection whatsoever though!

I picked up this FC for pennies ages ago when they were clearing them out. Turns out it's 5v BEC was browning out on connection so I had to use an external 5v BEC

let's see how the maiden goes! hopefully not much jello (these hulkies aren't known for the best balance, but I have nothing else <2")

13 August 2018 update
got one maiden batt outside my building

14 August 2018 update
got one battery in on a sunny day to see how bad the jello is

15 September 2018 update
last flight! going to rebuild this into another frame that offers more protection
