    I am 75% done with this build. I did not see a receiver in your parts list. What receiver do I need to get? I’m using a Jumper T16 Pro Transmitter. Help please! I am ready to get her in the air!

  2. Vlad-is-my-name on August 30, 2020 at 10:41 am

    I’m complete noob, so sorry if this is a dumb question, but would it work with fullsize GoPro of similar knock off? I ussualy see it with GoPro session, so just wonder if there is enough power for extra few grams or would it messup balance of the drone?

  3. Sasha Vlogs on August 30, 2020 at 10:42 am

    could i use a dsmx receiver with the mamba stack i have a dx6 and if yes what receiver would work thanks

  4. wout schouten on August 30, 2020 at 10:42 am

    I have build the same drone and when i fly with 6s it freaks out when in give full throttle (2400kv motors ) (battery tattu rline 1300mha 120c)

  5. Aquarius January on August 30, 2020 at 10:43 am

    True 120

  6. Viper_FPV on August 30, 2020 at 10:44 am

    Have you built this quad? Here is the specific Betaflight 4.1 Guide on setup

  7. Mario Breunig on August 30, 2020 at 10:45 am

    The Antenna is sold out can anyone tell my how i can find out wich antenna fits or is suitable? Im new to this and can’t figure out what to look fo and what fits what and so on… 🙂 Glad for your help!

  8. Sam Abtahi on August 30, 2020 at 10:45 am

    What will be the range and flight time for this ?

  9. Austin Lee on August 30, 2020 at 10:47 am

    Been flying this build for a bit now, love it! What would I have to do to upgrade to 6s? Motors for sure, but does the mamba stack do well on 6s? Does it require a different capacitor?

  10. Patrick Klingler on August 30, 2020 at 10:47 am

    Can I usw my GoPro 8?

  11. Danger Doberman on August 30, 2020 at 10:50 am

    I’ve been waiting my whole life for this video! >:0

  12. Noah Morley on August 30, 2020 at 10:50 am

    Camera and antenna are currently out of stock. Do you have any alternatives. Thx

  13. Vĩ Đồng on August 30, 2020 at 10:51 am

    hello man the motor are 1700kv or 2400kv to fly in 5s and 6s

  14. Jack Tiebie on August 30, 2020 at 10:52 am

    7:19 xc16? were did you get this from?

  15. Scott Trevena on August 30, 2020 at 10:55 am

    Hi there, I have purchased all the parts for the pro build using your links. The areal is currently OOS, Are there alternatives. Also I have a Spectrum DX6 and a receiver. Can these be used and if so what if any changes are required? Likewise I have a Fatshark Dominator V3? Thanks for any advice. Cheers

  16. Sonar Fleet on August 30, 2020 at 10:56 am

    Is there a service to assembly this kit? I don’t know how to soldering small contacts. Is it necessary any programming after all? I want one this, but working. Do you recommend someone?

  17. JS제이에스 on August 30, 2020 at 10:59 am

    Can I use batter cable thickness 14awg? 12awg is hard to solder.

  18. THE BEAST on August 30, 2020 at 11:00 am

    Do you know any other frame like this you show?

  19. NicoTheChico on August 30, 2020 at 11:02 am

    I built this exact drone! It’s very good so far but I haven’t gotten to fly it yet. If u want u can see me (a noob) build and get the drone into the air! (Plus a crash lol) I posted my video of this yesterday, thx for this build as it is my first ever quad! 🙂

  20. DstruX on August 30, 2020 at 11:05 am

    Nice! Great info man. Subbed!

  21. Lukas kalvoy on August 30, 2020 at 11:06 am

    Should i build this drone? And if i want to drive it when im done, what do I need to buy?

  22. CFA NYU on August 30, 2020 at 11:06 am

    at 12:50 you show that the receiver is mounted under the ESC, but then mention you are adding another receiver, I don’t get it?

  23. Aydin Torres on August 30, 2020 at 11:08 am

    I just started watching this and i’m definitely gonna build it, does this include everything, like battery and program for it and how to do it and other things that an inexperienced fpv drone flyer would need?

  24. MissPinaii on August 30, 2020 at 11:09 am

    Thank you so much for this!

  25. Spiritual Mommy on August 30, 2020 at 11:10 am

    Where can I find a xt60 already soldiered ?

  26. The Shadow on August 30, 2020 at 11:12 am

  27. Tate Shelton on August 30, 2020 at 11:12 am

    Will the 1900kv work? Cause that’s what I got haha

  28. Dokter Maiskorn on August 30, 2020 at 11:14 am

    Thx Corona 240$

  29. Troy Castles on August 30, 2020 at 11:15 am

    very nice

  30. Aldren Jetsch Arcamo on August 30, 2020 at 11:15 am

    What controller to use?

  31. brisket12 on August 30, 2020 at 11:15 am

    Was thinking about buying it till u said I had to put it together.

  32. Jayden Lamb on August 30, 2020 at 11:16 am

    got the pro coming in the mail now! but im using a Frsky xm+ in it and that has to be wired different am i not mistaken?

  33. Dokter Maiskorn on August 30, 2020 at 11:16 am

    The cables. I don’t geht it. Its so complex for me. I’m a Beginner and i want to build my First Quad. I’m confused with the cables

  34. varuninnz on August 30, 2020 at 11:17 am

    Thanks for this video. I can’t really afford a DJI mini and really want to learn how to build my own drone. My understanding is that an FPI will be a lot better than a DJI mini or even pro?
    Can you confirm this?

  35. Scott Trevena on August 30, 2020 at 11:19 am

    Hi Viper_FPV, maybe a stupid question but in the build you are using screws and bolts etc. Any recommendations on supplies. Likewise wire. Cheers

  36. Mc_ V on August 30, 2020 at 11:20 am

    Hey, I realy want to build this 120 dollars drone, but Im completely new to building drones. So Ive got a question: Which equipment do I need (battery, remote controll, etc.)? And is there a possibylity to get everything I need for around 210 bucks?

  37. The_Viper_MC on August 30, 2020 at 11:21 am

    what are the cheapest goggles and controllers would you recommend that aren’t absolute crap?

  38. Kaustubh Ilurkar on August 30, 2020 at 11:22 am

    Which lipo batter is required to this quad I am an complete rookie in this hobby plz help 🙁 and can u help me with a good transmitter with this comparable for this quad

  39. Antoine Artigalas on August 30, 2020 at 11:23 am

    can I use IBUS on this build?

  40. Lucas Nicoara on August 30, 2020 at 11:23 am

    Ran it with a 3s to test it, but realized I didn’t plug an antenna to the VTX, so I immidiately unplugged it. Mounted the antenna, ran it again, and short… Smoke came out in a burst. Still, connected again with the VTX original antenna, and it is running with lights on, but I suspect it’s toast. Any thoughts on this?

  41. MissPinaii on August 30, 2020 at 11:24 am

    Would I be able to use this antenna? (current listed is sold out). If yes, what connector would be compatible for the VTX? (RP-SMA Male / SMA Male)

  42. Griffin Miranda on August 30, 2020 at 11:25 am

    You mention at the end of the video that you need to leave a wire to shut off the camera osd but how do you you do that and do you need to do that?

  43. Dokter Maiskorn on August 30, 2020 at 11:26 am

    Can i usw the FS ia6 and how?

  44. LarK Kane on August 30, 2020 at 11:27 am

  45. Derek Bradfield on August 30, 2020 at 11:28 am

    Much thanks for this build guide. I opted for the pro build but I’m running into an issue where all my motors are spinning CW. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

  46. Micah Evearitt on August 30, 2020 at 11:29 am

    Hi. I was wondering if one of the products that you have in the description has the xt60 7:02 that comes with it, or do I have to buy it separately? Also, do the wires that you used with it come with xt60 or do I have to buy that separately also? Last question lol. Does this setup come with all of the screws, wires, etc? Thanks in advance!

  47. Dafydd Smith on August 30, 2020 at 11:29 am

    I built the "Budget pro build" for my first fpv drone and am definitely not disappointed, great build, great assembly instructions, great video. Thank you!

  48. Scott Trevena on August 30, 2020 at 11:35 am

    Have just received all the parts for this and started to put together. The frame comes in pieces so instead of removing the top plate I have to figure out assembly. That includes the insertion of the nuts in the carbon fiber. This was not straight forward and I stripped to screws and had to deal with the associated effort to remove. The stack was already assembled so I am not clear how to install stand offs etc. is there a reason for the difference. Btw, this is my second quad. I build the JB one while waiting for Banggood to deliver stuff. Cheers

  49. Brass Bawls on August 30, 2020 at 11:36 am

    Help I have martian 2 frame 2205 2600 kv motors suceex x4 mini stack and it’s just not looking like it will work. What should I do now???

  50. TatoNatoBorch FPV on August 30, 2020 at 11:37 am

    What is that pen? Is that like flux in a pen? Where do you get that.?
