The best indoor option to date!


Ha Ha..... Finally the Pico has its own thread! The Pico Owl light edition is the only competition out there of it's class comparing to the Moskito 70. BUT! The Pico light has so much more going for it and it all starts with the price. Future build to come.

I absolutely love this frame and it's versatility. Dmitry are you planning on moving forward with the frame that resembled the Pico X but had longer arms to swing 2.5" props? Or the 70mm frame? With the new power whoop fc from furiousfpv and it's nano 16x16mm size, I would think this year we might see an owl in the 60mm range?....oh please oh please ��

just finished my build last night. even with 4in1 esv and piko blx it is challenging build and i loved it! since i have no props yet (ordered some 2035 quad props) i haven't flown yet..

even frsky micro sbus receiver wasn't fit in the middle of the layout. ordered frsky xm+, hoping to be able to fit in..

and other thing i need to find a way to hold cam on top plate.. :/

Mine is on the way! I opted for ducts to fly inside and RotorX 1105B for POWAH! I hope to post some FPV videos of it in action. I'd love if we could 3D print replacement ducts in case I break these.

tried to fit 1105b 6500kv to my build before but rotorx 2435 props are not good fit for the frame.. or even that didn't worked for me. would like to see if anyone able to fit in.

I love the quality and innovation from FlexRC! I have a Pico to build as my next project, can't wait!

Looks great! Have you thought about stacking a 4-in-1 ESC in the middle in order to allow for thinner arms near the motors for less blocking of the prop thrust?

Thanks

I ordered mine a few days ago. Can't wait.
I'm going to try a 1s brushless build with 1102 motors, but might not be successful... (Need 15-20kkv motors ).

I'd love to see some other size x frames, as well, with duct or bumper option. Just slightly larger for 2.5" props would be great. But I guess so would a tiny 60 or 70mm ..

What are people using for receivers? I've got frsky. I've got the FuriousFPV lr1000 in another copter (little brushed whoop) and I only get 50-100 meters out before I get RSSI alarms. I'd like something with more range for this pico owl.
