With my other race quad completely stripped for spare parts, I thought it was time to get into racing and build a starter race quad for me to practice some laps.

The frame is a Dragana 5 which is a lighter Floss 2.1 with a shorter wheelbase and a printed canopy. I found it on sale for cheap and I really like it. The motors were not intended to be Emax Eco's. They were intended to be RSII's but I couldn't wait for the other motors to come in the mail so I built it with them anyway. They fly good enough for now. I meant to order a 20x20 stack as well but it ended up with a 30x30 stack. I would have preferred the smaller components but its okay!

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