As winter is now in full swing I fancied doing a new FPV quad build, for months I have lusted after the TBS Vendetta but never got the cash together to actually buy one, further to this some time back DYS very kindly sent me some of their SE 2205 motors to test but TBH I have been up to my eyes in it and was unable to really do anything with them so it was an opportunity to start a new build rather than buy one.



What was important to me in this build was something that gave the appearance and compact build of the TBS, I did not want wires hanging out everywhere ect, I wanted a clean tidy build, the first port of call was looking at frames and very quickly came across Thug Frames in the UK http://miniquadfpv.com .



These guys make some really interesting models, including The Pig, The Squeeler , The V5 and the BRÅNNSTORMER, I really liked the V5 220 Lowrider, this model comes in a few versions like the Original Lowrider 220 V5 that takes a standard camera mount options, The Session edition that has specific cut outs to hold the GoPro Session above the FPV camera and the Session X Edition.

I went for the Original 220 V5 and just over 24 hours later it had arrived



Please note some part of these images have been distorted intentionally.















The Frame Components include

220 arms x2, v5 bottom plate x1, 2 piece top plate with new strapways instead of slots (engravings can be mounted facing either up or down)

Finger cam mounts

Pdb v1.2 (just add xt60)
