Unique Rocket Shaped FPV Quad

Well, if you are bored and looking for an interesting project, you can check out this drone. It's a 3D printed rocket drone and the files are available on Thingiverse so you can give it a shot yourself. The builder was able to get over 120MPH on 4S so who knows what speeds you can achieve on 6S. Here's some more info on the setup and characteristics from the builder.

"Looks like a rocket but "under the hood" it's all FPV racing drone components :-) This thing is quite a lot of fun to build and fly. I reached speeds of around 200 km/h on a 4S battery. But I clearly recommend this only to people who are experiences in building FPV quadcopters or have general experience with model aviation. Controlling this setup will be an absolute nightmare for inexperienced pilots especially takeoff and landing. On the other hand if you are a pretty decent FPV pilot you won't have any problem flying this, the camera angle isn't as crazy as it looks and it handles pretty much like a normal 3" if you don't try to do crazy maneuvers.

A few words on takeoff and landing You can run this on a fairly normal camera angle of 45-50 so lading is pretty much the same as on an aggressive FPV racing setup apart from the fact that you have to be way more carefully. Just slowly make it hover close to the ground and disarm. For Takeoff tape a roll of toilet paper to the ground and stick the rear part in to hold the quad upright...."

Compatible parts:

  • Max. 3" propellers
  • Motors with 14xx sized stator and 12x12 M2 mounting pattern.
  • 20x20 ESC/FC stacks
  • 14mm nano cameras
  • Batteries around 850mah 4S

Check out the project on Thingiverse

This must be fun to fly LOS as well, but orientation migh be achallenge.

That would be very hard to keep up with unless you painted it one color for top and other for bottom.
