    you have inspired me to get better at soldering and build my first quad ever ive had 2 in the past one i had ordered the parts and had someone build it for me i sold it then i bought a emax hawk 5 sport and im going to build this!

  4. Santhosh Gopady on October 18, 2021 at 8:35 am

    Thanks a lot for a very good video. Really informative.

  5. H2O- FPV on October 18, 2021 at 8:37 am

    Thats a nice frame to be a budget build and the rest of the parts i think u got it right good tutorial thank u

  6. Diogo Santos on October 18, 2021 at 8:38 am

    I was considering buying the Emax Tinyhawk II Freestyle as my first drone, but I would definitely prefer to build my own as I already have the tools.
    You think something like this would be nicer?

  7. ROYAL AMV on October 18, 2021 at 8:45 am

    Good-bye fpv community

  8. Paul Wunschel on October 18, 2021 at 8:46 am

    I’ve been building for about 2 years now… these are my suggestions some parrot other comments.
    separate the RX antenna to separate arms, get some 63/37 solder a new tip for your iron and some flux.
    your tip should be clean and shiny… always put solder on your tip when you’re finished (that will keep it in good condition)
    and I Highly recommend covering your motor wires to protect against prop strikes.
    hope this is helpful. 👍
    oh and I forgot… I fly the source one freestyle frame, it’s very tough has 20×20 and 30×30 mounting front and back and is only 26.99 at reputable FPV shops

    subscribing you bro

  10. Peter on October 18, 2021 at 8:46 am

    Ordered all of the parts and went to print the 30×30 to 20×20 convertor and realised you haven’t shared the 3D printed file here, is it possible to get that file so I will be able to complete the build?

  11. lanszsazani on October 18, 2021 at 8:49 am

    Great build and fly….sub u bro!

  12. David Simpson on October 18, 2021 at 8:49 am

    great tutorial. thanks for taking the time to put this together so well. the beat loop helps a lot too 💪🏿

  13. Kyle Fpv on October 18, 2021 at 8:57 am

    Great little build. For an extra $20 though, the racerstar race editions are no joke. Still keeping it budget but with some slightly more powerful motors.

  14. glen paul on October 18, 2021 at 8:57 am

    Great build !

  15. Cloud Duck FPV on October 18, 2021 at 9:00 am

    Nice video, the only change I would do is to change the motors and get some emax eco 2 but overall I wish I had seen this video when I started.

  16. Shameless FPV on October 18, 2021 at 9:04 am

    Separate your rx antennas onto each arm to get 90 degree polarisation. You can easily fail safe the way you set it up if you rotate the drone into the null spot.

  17. nubFPV on October 18, 2021 at 9:04 am

    Get better solder. That one is not good.

  18. RPG FPV on October 18, 2021 at 9:05 am

    clean, sick build dude! i do agree with Cloud Duck FPV on the Emax motors. i use them on my builds and have never had a problem with them. also, i found that the Goldbat 1500mAh 100c batteries on amazon work really well too. great option for beginners (or frugal minded pilots) on a budget. keep up the great work!

  19. Eknath Mhatre on October 18, 2021 at 9:06 am

    Hi sir please send me your WhatsApp number please

  20. ROYAL AMV on October 18, 2021 at 9:07 am

    I just enjoy the simulator now
    Flying or importing drones are banned in my country from last month

  21. Eri on October 18, 2021 at 9:07 am

    thanks for the tutorial it is very helpful

  22. amirul amin mukhtar on October 18, 2021 at 9:08 am

    im really looking for someone build 5inch quad with mini stack! thank you so much

  23. Windjumbie FPV on October 18, 2021 at 9:10 am

    Thanks for the info…✌🏼subbed🌟

  24. Different Perspective on October 18, 2021 at 9:11 am

    Yeah learnt loads, you’ve inspired me to learn to solder and maybe give it a go myself👍

  25. John Zapata on October 18, 2021 at 9:15 am

    Hey thanks for the wonderful upload.

    Couple questions.
    Instead of the 20x20mm flight control and the 20×20 vtx… could I just use a 30×30 flight controller and 30x30vtx? Or a 30×30 flight controller with a 20×20 vtx? Hopefully I’m making sense with my questionslol

    Also, the Mount for the fpv cam, was that also 3d printed? Could you provide the specs that please?

  26. Cesar Falco on October 18, 2021 at 9:15 am

    What motors would you recommend if i wanted to spend a bit more? going for the mamba stack but i’m unsure about the motor prop combo. Also, my receiver is an sbus compatible receiver, so should work with the mamba f405, right? It’s a walkera rx sbus receiver. got a walkera devo f7 transmitter
    Thanks 🙂

  27. Dogsidog007 on October 18, 2021 at 9:19 am

    $150 build, uses a $100 Apex frame LOL

  28. Hugo Lopez on October 18, 2021 at 9:19 am

    any similar builds in the works? would like to see the upgrade version. how long is the range and flight time? good for kids?

  30. VEKTR on October 18, 2021 at 9:21 am

    The emax eco ii motors are a good low budget choice. I dont recommend flying around cars for maiden, never know when things could go wrong after fresh build.

  31. Eknath Mhatre on October 18, 2021 at 9:25 am

    Hi sir I have all parts but this all parts ship to India yes or no
