Another Toothpick inspired Build

This build was inspired by Kababfpv and his toothpick.
I just couldn't wait for his frame to be available - once it arrives I will just have to build another quad!
I stole quite a few ideas from this build as well:
Thanks @sergetania!

The parts are a complete transplant of my Beta75x.
Since 2S is too much for indoor flying, at least for a beginner like me, it was my park-flyer anyways.
So why not make it more awesome?!

I redesigned the adatper to suit my needs.
It needed to be high to fit the stack of the Beta75x and I wanted to be able to reach the usb port on the bottom without taking the quad apart ervery time.
Then I threw in an antenna holder for good measure!
The adapter and the bumpers are PETG. Let's see how well those hold up.
Wire extension were so annoying, but I really wanted to keep using those motors.

Takeoff weight of the quad is 69 grams.

Maiden flight will be tomorrow.

Dudeee that looks sleeek with the 3d pritned parts plus the space black canopy!!! got some flight videos?

Nice build! It's quite a huge toothpick! Hopefully, extra weight is not enough to break things crashing.
Are you actually able to plug in a USB cable when assembled? I gave up on that because of the Lil duece frame.

I hope so too!
With the cut-out I added at the back of the mount I can reach the USB. Maybe I will upload the new adapter, if you are interested .

About the weight, I run 2S so performance-wise it shouldn't be too much of an issue :D

I wouldn't be concerned about the performance but breaking things. Extra weight does that. Should be fine

With the release of the DJI FPV Drone cinematic FPV has become a lot more accessible, but you certainly don't want to crash a $750 drone! The QAV-CINE Freybott is a compact, lightweight cinematic FPV drone that can take a hit and keep going. It's a lot safer to fly indoors and around people. With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..

FPV has had quite a journey. Just a few years ago we started racing drones around a track and doing flips over trees, but professional cinematic FPV is a more recent development. DJI has always owned the drone photography market, but smaller acrobatic drones are starting to enter the market. They have the advantage of close proximity flight indoors and around people. There's more artistic freedom and..
