Ive been following kebabfpv's YouTube videos and webpages on this frame for a while now.

I have to say I am well impressed with the builds he's been working on re: toothpick.

I have been gradually collecting parts to build mine. I can't wait!

It seems like every time Kebab posts a new video one more component is completely abandoned and new, monumentally better parts are being introduced. Not that I'm upset about it, he did warn everyone about this and made sure to mention it's probably best to wait till the dust settles to start ordering parts. Those videos are just too good though.

As soon as the first video went up I ordered the Crazybee F4 board but I'm sure soon enough everyone will be buying the V2 boards from the Mobula HD (1-3s 6A) whenever they become available. I also backordered the AMAXinno 1103 motors but there's talk of a new motor in his most recent posts on his site. Also ordered the camera/vtx combo he recommends (the HappyModel HCF7) and now he's talking about prototype frames coming in for mounting the Caddx Turtle lol.

I got a feeling I'm going to have enough parts to build 3 toothpicks by the time summer rolls around.

I like the idea, especially with most of the world needing to register quads over 250g. These little quads are safer for everyone. I may build one, but I am going to at least try it with a Runcam micro for the camera, instead of an AIO.

Hi all,

I just saw these motors with bearings sold with Mobula7 DIY kits.
Are these new motors? Would these be better for Toothpick frames than the vibrating originals?

There’s also this GnarlyFPV frame that’s interesting:
gnarlyfpv primo part 1 (13 min 15 sec)


It’s maybe time to list the toothpick-like frames?

Personally I’m in to find the best 1S setup, as I fly in tight place with people around...
Any recommendations?

Are you sure these are the same? I thought the TC had no bearings...

His sales commission checks are probably nice Mounting a caddx turtle on one of these light weight builds seems dumb though and kinda defeats its purpose

Spinfast basically cloned it, and have it in stock I believe.

Edit: Ok basically was the wrong word. It's called the "Spinfast Toothpick", mentions that it's based on the original toothpick, and also includes Kebab's complete component list in it's description.
