Using some budget parts for this lightweight 3 inch build.

Had to improve the design after ripping off the camera lens and antenna of the AIO camera in a crash.
Now more robust with the camera in the front and the half of a ping pong ball strengthend with a layer
of epoxy protecting the antenna. Also water-proofed the electronics.

Generally, I recommend to add some additional glue around the lens and the board of these AIO cameras.
They come off quite easily. Here is the replacement lens that I used after loosing the original one:

Weight is now: 109g

Couldn't wait for the fpv gear and installed an AIO camera on top of it.
A lot of power and fun! But shouldn't crash to often in this configuration.
The AIO will not take it lightly :D

  • LOS weight: 101 g
  • incl. AIO camera: 105 g
  • incl. AIO camera + battery (500mah/850mah 3s): 154 g / 180 g

  • Motors were around 6$ on Banggood.
  • FC was 9$ on sale

Great job on the weight! You couldn't find a link to the motors with a price? The total isn't quite accurate.

This makes sense. I assumed the prices do not change once they are entered because my TX03 still showed the reduced price.
I wanted to get another one but on banggood its now back to the normal price :D Only entered it yesterday so it hasnt been rescanned yet.

I am not sure if I find the one that you are refering to. The only one that comes close is the red 1306 on banggood but that seems to be a different model (rated 1-2s).

They do change, but not every day. It can take a while to collect all the prices, so it happens over a long period of time. You're right, it seems this motor isn't available for sale anymore. I wonder why..

Probably not the best quality. Let's see how they hold up...
I think I would have tried the Emax 1306 4000KV with this frame if I had not lying those around.

AirbladeUAV has done it again and this time they've brought long range to the 5" class! Based on the popular Transformer Mini, the new Transformer 5" Ultralight adopts a lot of the same design philosophies with larger props and more payload capacity. It can fly upwards of 20 minutes on a 4 cell Li-Ion battery pack and in ideal conditions it's got a range of over 4 to 5 miles. In this guide I'll walk..

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..
