In a desire not to have to register with the authorities and stick it to the man , I came up with a quad build that weighs under 250g and capable of long range and penetration with 1.3 Video and Dragonlink and of course a great OSD.
So I created my FUFAA Quad:
160 Frame with 1306 3100kv motors, 12A blheli, 4 inch BL props, UHF and 1.3 video and Minim OSD.
Here are all the parts I used for this build:
Diatone ET 160 Carbon fiber (bangood)
4 in1 readymade rc 12A blheli esc
Flight controller of your choice with pins un-soldered (saves as lot of weight!)
4 x 25mm 2m standoffs (to clear 4 inch props)
Micro minim OSD (mwosd 1.51)
1258/1280MHz Mini 200mW Transmitter (The antenna according to my calculations should be trimmed to 5.5mm)
600TVL 1/4 1.8mm CMOS FPV 3.7-5V (powered with 3.3v from fc). Flying weight with this cam 242g.
RunCam PZ0420M-L24 9g works perfectly (powered from flight battery) make sure you get the model L24. (A little bit heavier, gets you right under 250g! With great picture)
DYS 1306 3100kv Brushless Motor CW & CCW Pair
4" Bullnose Props
Micro Dragonlink rx
Turnigy Bolt 1000mAh 3S 11.4V 65~130C High Voltage Lipoly
→ Total flying weight 249 grams with pz0420-L24!
My custom motor mix for Diatone 160
