    FUFAA Quad - The build under 250g!

    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.

ID:	70314RunCam 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)

    Nice, love the name as well
    If you're a noob, copy 1:1 what somebody already flies without too much questions, you'll find the answers later.

    I have a similar (in spirit) build in the works. A diatone 180 frame, 4 in 1 ESC, pixhawk lite, 1306 3100kv, de-cased mobius with 8 inch lens extension, 915mhz telemetry, 5.8ghz vtx. I'm basically going to try to build a full featured AP quad under 250g. The mobius lens will go on a super simple servo based gimbal. I'm not even sure if it will all work out but I figured it's worth a shot. If you guys know of anyone working on something similar, point me in their direction!

    I have the same frame and motors with a Flip32+ AIO flight controller with LB20A esc's. I also have a 5.8ghz 200mw VTX but had to remove the 4 inch bullnose props since I smoked a motor using them. I'm using standard gemfan 4045's. Using Frsky 4DR II receiver. What's the furthest away you've flown with that LR setup? I love the frame its sexy looking and very light weight.

    Hahaha "Fufaa". Lol what does it stand for? What flight times are you getting from this rig? Always wanted an ultra small quad for long range fpv (Even though I don't have to register here in Singapore huehue)

    A substantial amount of funds should go into marketing the amazing FUFAA quad!
