My EPP FPV build

For my starter plane into FPV I originally got a Bixler 2 then modified it to carry more payload, however in my first attempts I faced problems and in my final attempt I had a critical failure

My Bixler doesn't like FPV (and meets its DOOM) (6 min 3 sec)


Having the cash and a vacancy for a platform I decided to look at other airframes, and at its limited cost I came across the EPP FPV from Hobbyking

So far I'm only a little bit past the build, which I have the video for here

The EPP FPV BUILD VIDEO | *Read the Description* (18 min 13 sec)


Hopefully no one minds me cutting out the filler. As a downside to the cost, building this plane takes a little prior know-how as will be shown in the video. Being one of their older models, the build quality is questionable and the insyructions lack some crucial detail. Follow me and let's whether this project goes well, or if I just go deeper down the rabbit hole

I have a 1400kv motor, but I haven't had a chance to fly it and see how well it does (Oregon weather is as predictable as a 4 year old child). I actually finished my mods on it here:

Yeah you'd have a better chance of getting yours up in the air sooner

I should seriously do a waterproof build so that way I have a chance to fly this time of year
