I'm working on this setup at the moment. Micro 5.8 ghz vtx with 160 ma nanotech lipo.
I mounted the vrx to the bottom of my controller for my V222 micro quad and will be using a patch antenna as soon as it arrives. It won't be powerful or long range but it should be great fun at the park or in the yard.
And the best part is that it's dirt cheap.

Nice little setup hope to see a video soon looks like it will be a blast to fly!

I did simular setup with the rc logger rc eye one using the tx5805 with a cloverleaf and a 3 turn helical on my reciever..

Great little nieghborhood quad..

I built this one for a bit longer range

I'm thinking of trying to make a cloverleaf for mine as well. I've got a cloverleaf on a 10mw hk vtx and it works great. I'm using it for an AP downlink on a large quad. I'm getting about 150 feet with this setup and hope to get upwards of 100 yards with the patch antenna. The controller on the V222 has gotten me out to over 400 feet and that's stock. I must have gotten lucky because mine hasn't had any of the dropout issues others have.
As of yet, I don't have any way to record my flights so I'll have to check into an av cable for my vrx (it has 2 ports) and a dvr. Today my patch antenna came so now I'm ready to see how far out this thing will go.

How do you like the frame. I was thinking about getting 1 since I have a whole bunch of misc electronics laying around haha. Wonder how it will handle a crash. Might make a good beater quad for flying around the yard

No thats with fpv equipment minus the video rx and goggles or video monitor..

Thats frame/motors/camera/esc's/video/transmitter/noise filter
I went a bit overkill on the vtx 600mw.. you can get a pnp vtx with vrx 200mw for the same price of my immersion rc vtx then all you will need is a viewing device IE goggles or monitor..

I can post links to the parts of the budget one or the full blown one if you want..

You can even knock the price down 60 dollars if you build a mini wood H frame thats so simple to build like my previous version.. both fly the same wooden one is a bit lighter but the carbon just looks better.. either way in the air you wont notice the difference..

If there is enough intrest i will make a mini video build log on the wooden mini or carbon..

Hope that helps answer your question


Cheers

mini 125 size fpv quadcopter diy (3 min 16 sec)


Like i said it mostly comes down to looks.. but when looking through the goggles and having the sticks in your hands you wouldnt even notice the difference between the 2 in the air..

Here some pics of the woody and the new lil budget carbon one im building

Hey mate,

Can you tell me the diagonal motor to motor dimension of the frame? And if the motor mounts will accept screws at 14mm (diagonal) centres?

I'm wondering if I can fit 7" props? It looks like it might from your top down shot with the 5030's?

Did a quick bench test with Multistar 1704's and HQ Pro 7x4's here...

Might make for a good, efficient cruiser FPV ship?



Cheers.

Hey bud
Its 250mm diagnol motor to motor..

Motor mount holes are exactly 14mm center of screws diagnol so the motors will bolt in with no mods .

7inch props will not fit you will be crossing over props 1/8th of a inch, havnt seen your test yet but was it 2s or 3s? Maybe try 5inch on 3s?
