Hey guys! Here is the long awaited budget fpv build for under $150! Keep in mind, the pricing is including for the base quad, the 3D printed parts, the RX, and some of the other accessories that I decided to put on there are not included in that $150 price point. If you want to build it exactly as I have it would cost more towards the $200 mark. But those are $50 of OPTIONAL accessories.

Budget Quad:
Foxeer Arrow Micro: https://bit.ly/3bjcnTX
Buy this adapter for the camera aswell: https://bit.ly/3c3EmWu
TBS Source One frame: https://bit.ly/2NRmbvt
EMAX Eco II 2306 2400kv motors: https://bit.ly/383IrZR
Mamba F405 FC/ESC Stack: https://bit.ly/3sRbTtN
Foxeer Lollipop 3 antennae: https://bit.ly/3qgKH62
HQ Props: https://bit.ly/3e5Uaef
1000 microF 35V capacitors: https://amzn.to/3uVeQf1
Frame Feet: https://amzn.to/3rfdEkp

Tuning Notes:
First and foremost you do not need to tune this quad for it to run decent. Betaflight 4.2 is great on its own. However if you want it real nice here are some steps. These steps may be a bit advanced for some so if you do not know which parameters you are changing do not do so.
1.Activate and turn on bidirectional d-shot, set your motor poles to 14.
2.Change PID loop frequency to 4khz, and motor protocol to DSHOT300
3.In the PID tuning tab change the PD balance to .9, and P and D Gain to 1.5.
4. in Filter settings change gyro RPM filter on, Harmonics: 2 and min frequency 100.
5. Dynamic Notch filter values from top to bottom: 0, 250, 150, 350.
These settings should get the quad flying pretty dang smooth!

    So the Diatone Mamba F405 Mk2 F40 is sold out. Would the Diatone Mamba F50_BLS 50A 3-6S 30×30 4in1 ESC be a good alternative? What’s the reason between the Diatone Mamba F50_BLS 50A 3-6S 30×30 4in1 ESC and Diatone Mamba F50 32Bit 50A 3-6S 30×30 4in1 ESC? 32-Bit as in what benefits does it have? I will be running it with some fatshark goggles and a taranis qx6.

    This is basically exactly what I’m planning for my next build but I wanna used the fpvcycle glide frame just for space and easy arm replacement but then again with that price for the source 1 I could get 2 ,1 for parts.

  3. Attila Tevi on November 19, 2021 at 10:09 am

    Great work buddy. 👍🏼🔥

  4. Luke911able on November 19, 2021 at 10:11 am

    What would be a good budget transmitter to use with this quad?

  5. DRONE;ж;DOME 三FPV三 on November 19, 2021 at 10:12 am

    Supa! I’m shopping for a $200ish quad. I’m leaning towards freestyle but long range would be cool. As long as I could pull G’s in a split S and / or occasional powerloop.
    I prefer traditional analog. I understand digital is becoming increasingly inevitable. But I just started with a decent transmitter and diversity goggles. Lol. I should have already been past this point by now but hey.. We all do what we can.
    So anyhow. Any input on my next build or buy would be awesome.
    Other viewers as well. All input is appreciated by myself and other future people like myself.
    Thanks for your time.

    Hello nice build, is there any chance of seeing how to assemble it???

  9. Mango Juice on November 19, 2021 at 10:17 am

    I didn’t see anything on controllers, any controllers you recommend? Does any fpv controller work or are there specific ones that are compatible with this build? Sorry if this is a newbie question. Appreciate your time. Like and subbed 👍🏽

  10. RZFPV on November 19, 2021 at 10:20 am

    Really great video, thanks for sharing bro. This is such a great build!

  11. Adam Seal on November 19, 2021 at 10:22 am

    You could use readytosky mark 4 frame clone its cost like 20-25$ and its exact same

  12. Dan on November 19, 2021 at 10:24 am

    This vs nazgul 5?

  13. Adven Tips on November 19, 2021 at 10:24 am

  14. Felix Jz on November 19, 2021 at 10:26 am

    This build is over $200

  15. scash on November 19, 2021 at 10:27 am

    Great video. I will subscribe

  21. Jorge Nva on November 19, 2021 at 10:34 am

    What goggles and controller you recommend I don’t have nothing and I want to buy my first quad

  22. cowkingninja on November 19, 2021 at 10:34 am

    That drone looks cool

  23. Lu Diamonds on November 19, 2021 at 10:37 am

    I agree with Golden_FPV you would definitely think you would have at least 20k subs or something up there. Your videos are decent bro. You must be just getting started. Or not pushing hard enough. Keep it up bro you will be up there in no time at all… Nice vid. I subbed.

  24. N8 Taing on November 19, 2021 at 10:37 am

    Another line of budget motors I would recommend are the T motor velox v2’s. I have the 2207 2550kv and they are some really really good motors, and just for $13 a piece

  25. Casual Flying on November 19, 2021 at 10:37 am

    I do legitimately think that your content is on par with the "big Guys". Great production quality, stays on topic, all around great. seriously!

  26. TheXZ on November 19, 2021 at 10:38 am

    Another great video 😀 really neat information!

  27. Wynn FPV on November 19, 2021 at 10:38 am

    Very nicely out together man! What camera do you run?

  28. Golden_FPV on November 19, 2021 at 10:40 am

    If I watches your vid I’d have guessed you had 100k subs. Bro you’re an amazing content creator for your channel size.

  29. Reecefpv on November 19, 2021 at 10:40 am

    What’s the auw

  30. Left Hand Clutch Channel on November 19, 2021 at 10:41 am

    I paid almost $ 300 and I think it’s cheap. LoL 😂😂😂

  31. Ghost FPV on November 19, 2021 at 10:42 am

    Yessss Supa; I see you. Great work!

  32. MissPinaii on November 19, 2021 at 10:45 am

    Thank you. It can really flip and roll?

  33. Masa Production on November 19, 2021 at 10:46 am

    Completely underrated … Very good video mate🔥🤍

  34. nedthedj on November 19, 2021 at 10:46 am

    i see this channel getting somewhere

  35. The Lazer Project on November 19, 2021 at 10:47 am

    How do you film so good bro, you deserve many more followers, im sure that sooner or later your work will pay off, like seriously the cinematography is 10/10

  36. Bill Gates on November 19, 2021 at 10:48 am

    underrated channel ngl

  37. ChupoCro on November 19, 2021 at 10:50 am

    Only 5 minutes when just cruising? Something is out of balance. 5" quadcopter with 2205 2300 Kv motors + 4s battery and the right propellers cruise time should be at least above 10 minutes if not close to 15 minutes.

  38. GAZ FPV on November 19, 2021 at 10:52 am

    Nice flying supa. 👍 Another smooth rip. 👍 Great info. 👍 🇬🇧😀

  39. Yue Beifong on November 19, 2021 at 10:52 am

    Its getting better

  40. Victor on November 19, 2021 at 10:54 am

    What battery did you use

  41. scash on November 19, 2021 at 10:55 am

    hey supa im new and not good at building drones , could you do a setup video and also recommend a google for me thanks 🙂

  42. Jean-Michael Pinelo on November 19, 2021 at 10:55 am

    Hey man!
    Love the video!
    What’s a good budget receiver I can get that would work with the betafpv lite radio 2 se?
    I’ll eventually upgrade but for now that’s what I got

  43. Willo firth on November 19, 2021 at 10:56 am

    Bro ur vids are amazing and so helpful!! I’m using all the parts that u listed to build my very first quad. U definitely deserve way more subs than u have

  44. I Di Boss on November 19, 2021 at 10:59 am

    Thanks for helping me make my final decision on whether I should build, or buy a bind and fly for my first qwad. I don’t have much money to drop on a qwad so I think I’ll copy most of the parts on your qwad.

  45. Davey FPV on November 19, 2021 at 11:00 am

    Nice video, you’re becoming Bardwell v2! My current favourite fc is the foxeer f722 because it is reliable, cheap, and has a great layout. It’s probably one of the best flight controllers for racing. I also use the hobbywing xrotor 4in1 escs because they are almost industructible. I’ve been flying those escs for a year and not one has broken. Getting a better esc can save in the long term because your quad is less likely to catch on fire, etc.

  46. Flanny fpv on November 19, 2021 at 11:00 am

    I need a new kwad. 😔 Awesome video my man🤜🏻💥🤛🏻👍🏻

  47. Kyle Fpv on November 19, 2021 at 11:01 am

    Amazing video and great build. i have a question though. How are you getting 30fps on the gopro 7 black?. Iv the same camera but there isn,t a 30fps option at all, cheers

  48. nuknok fpv on November 19, 2021 at 11:04 am

    very nice build man….

  49. Nolan Working on November 19, 2021 at 11:04 am

    Will a fly sky transmitter be able to connect to this drone? And how do I know what cheap goggles will work with it?
    Thanks

  50. Bob Chunduru on November 19, 2021 at 11:07 am

    This literally 200$ bro why are you lying to us
