What should I say? This project was fun :D

My inspiration was DCL game, in there I saw something similar. Of course my first thought was like "I need this". Luckily I had a not used Diatone 2019 GT R349, and a Reptile CLOUD-149HD frame. The body is 3d printed, there are 28 leds in it, and Timmy's eye is the camera. It's a heavy build, it's not to fast, but that's not the point. The windshield is from a snowglobe-like plastic toy.

I hope you like it :)

Are you sure you didn't use the Predator Micro and not the Nano? The cutout in the head is 19mm wide, which is Micro sized, not Nano.
edit: another quick note, mostly for anyone like me buying parts to build one for themselves, the frame linked in the parts list is not the right version. You'll need the Reptile CLOUD-149HD - the regular one in the link above won't work (ask me how I know)

Omg you're right, its the HD frame! Sorry I change it now. however the camera is the nano, It fits in the head piece perfectly :)

This is awesome! I've bought all the parts to build one, but can you link to the plastic toy you used for the windshield?

edit: is it this? http://www.incrediblescience.com/volcanic-eruptions.html

There are a lot of lovely X-quads out there, I have some myself, but seeing something truly inventive and unique is a real treat! And when an outlandish idea works out as well as this one did, well, serious props to you! (pun likely intended...) :-)

I'm going to echo what Jayembee67 said; the rest of us need to pack it in because I think you just 'won' FPV! lol Amazing, amazing design and implementation!

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..
