You guys have been asking for a budget build for a while now. I’ve never been happy with the cheap gear on the market, so I went through and found the cheapest stuff that won’t suck.

    Could you run the 5s on the 2400kv motors with the same ESC’s

  2. Matt Raymond on September 15, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    sweet build

  3. Pi Red on September 15, 2021 at 11:31 pm

    Is it possible to install an i-bus receiver using the solder pads?

  4. LittleR on September 15, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Wouldn’t buy this frame since battery straps break semi often and disassembling the entire frame seems line way too much work. Would recommend some generic alien clone (read the reviews, some of them are terrible) or the tbs source one for a first build since those are easy to build and have plenty of space for everything. The frame will likely be a thing that you want to swap at some point anyway, so don’t get anything too expensive.

  5. Country Boy Drones on September 15, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    O own 2 of those frames … they are actually pretty nice frames for the price

  6. Nicolai ML on September 15, 2021 at 11:35 pm

    Can this mount GoPro session? If it can’t, probs still gonna buy seems AMAZING FOR PRICE! Is it $160 including batteries? I would have to buy controller and some goggles too tho, no?

  7. jmsaltzman on September 15, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    Very cool, thanks!
    The first [Cam] link is 404 though 🙁 http://bit.ly/2JI6ovi ??

  8. QuinnMinedar on September 15, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    Can you release your PIDs for this build?

  9. X4Ghost_phantom4 on September 15, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    I made this for even cheeper by not buying the lipo battery, but for some reason it won’t fly?

  10. MatteoTV on September 15, 2021 at 11:38 pm

    Hello y need male or femelle antena

  11. Omar Amreki on September 15, 2021 at 11:40 pm

    Hi Everyone video you very very very nice l liked please tell price Brushless motor 2200KV

  12. Sang Nguyen on September 15, 2021 at 11:41 pm

    Can you please link the iflight battery strap? I ordered some 16mm but they were way too thin

  13. presse55 on September 15, 2021 at 11:42 pm

    Nice recommendation, definitely considering this build.
    You mention the cost should run around 160-180; my tally runs at 211; seems like quite a difference.
    Is it possible one/some prices(s) have gone up? Or am I missing a discount coupon somewhere?
    Thanks all the same Seth for your research on this build!
    Ron

  14. Francesco Coccia on September 15, 2021 at 11:43 pm

    Hi Seth, great video and great build.
    I have a question for you: How I can remove the black glue behind the TX805 VTX connector? Thank you so much

  15. Gus G on September 15, 2021 at 11:48 pm

    For the TX805, there’s two options, FMA Female and RP-SMA FEMALE, which one should i buy?

    Also for the camera there’s an NTSC and PAL option?

    Thank you

  16. Hal Hal on September 15, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Hi, first compliments from Italy for your skills and competence, I really apprectiate! Then I’m thinking to build your idea, in your opinion, with a gopro installed on the top you will see the propellers in the field of view?
    And also: do you have thinked about realize a similar "cheap build" with a longer frame in the way to have everything on the top? (battery and eventually cam)

  17. jerricho1422 on September 15, 2021 at 11:52 pm

    Do you have the pin out or a link to for the SKYSTARS TurboS F405. I haven’t been able to find a manual for this stack.

  18. Justine Turin on September 15, 2021 at 11:53 pm

    Bruh thats tight

  19. Lando Commando on September 15, 2021 at 11:55 pm

    Is it osd??

  20. cc devil on September 15, 2021 at 11:56 pm
  21. Nicholas A on September 16, 2021 at 12:00 am

    Can you put a gopro on top???

  22. D L on September 16, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Could u show how could I mount a gopro on this particular build?

  23. Hellmuth silva on September 16, 2021 at 12:01 am

    Im looking to build this but use same components on a marmotte frame and 4s. Would all this components work or I would have to change the motors? I’m looking to build one to use a dji system.

  24. Narsil on September 16, 2021 at 12:02 am

    Will this build fit for GoPro ? Why 6” not 5”?
    I’m newbie…

  25. Nethra BJ on September 16, 2021 at 12:02 am

    No tyro99 is the cheap 99$

  26. Alessio Moroni on September 16, 2021 at 12:03 am

    Can i put a gopro on this quad?

  27. Grady Balog on September 16, 2021 at 12:04 am

    What size frame do we need for this build.?

  28. krashy megee fpv on September 16, 2021 at 12:04 am

    Yeah I’ve whacked off a few… antennas 🤣

  29. Grady Balog on September 16, 2021 at 12:04 am

    What parts are optional and what parts have to be on the drone.

  30. MGL on September 16, 2021 at 12:08 am

    How would this compare to a kit like Eachine Tyro 129?

  31. jack fenn on September 16, 2021 at 12:09 am

    You do a very good video, but you should show yourself at some point, AND, you should actually FLY the thing! It is so much more professional to show the result of your labors. Very nice, presentable, and professional. You will be a wealthy young man soon, if you keep making vids like this!

  32. Headkick Ko on September 16, 2021 at 12:09 am

    Emax is no garbage. Served me for years in my YAK54

  33. Neldo FPV on September 16, 2021 at 12:11 am

    Already built mine 🙂

  34. Alex on September 16, 2021 at 12:15 am

    Could you update for this year?

  35. Heiple2007 on September 16, 2021 at 12:17 am

    Nice work Seth. Jeff

  36. alwise on September 16, 2021 at 12:18 am

    Is the foxeer hs1177 v2 a good camera?

  37. Michael Tait on September 16, 2021 at 12:18 am

    What was the frame that the Alfa monster copied?

  38. Mikołaj Lewandowski on September 16, 2021 at 12:19 am

    What is the max speed od this bulid?

  39. Sleepyhead fpv on September 16, 2021 at 12:20 am

    For anyone wanting a Freestyle version. Do this but get a TBS Source One frame.

  40. ADMIND3R on September 16, 2021 at 12:20 am

    nice man. im digging my 6s build a lil better tho, hskrc frame, racerstar motors, mamba f405, akk vtx, foxer antenna and camera, all for about 160$ but i lucked out with some deals. rock on

  41. OO V OO on September 16, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Nice

  42. Nicolai ML on September 16, 2021 at 12:21 am

    Flight test?

  43. Azeddine M on September 16, 2021 at 12:21 am

    Hi can you please do another build video similar to this one? Something geared towards freestyle and Los? Thanks!

  44. GENXFPV on September 16, 2021 at 12:22 am

    Hey man, I noticed you didn’t lay your wires over your esc in some of your later builds, did you have any heat, or other problems?

  45. CANDY QUADS racing on September 16, 2021 at 12:22 am

    I just bought the MAMBA stack 405 mk2, but I can´t figure out what pad my signal cable from my flysky i6b ( with ppm output) is supposed to be soldered to. Do you have any idea?

  46. RANDOMLY CHOSEN on September 16, 2021 at 12:22 am

    Bro can I use floss frame which is 4mm thick.is that can be durable or it can be begginer friendly

  47. Lachlan Thomas on September 16, 2021 at 12:23 am

    1:10 I love the condition of the packaging

  48. Lizard on September 16, 2021 at 12:23 am

    Could you do something similar (or recomend me here some good options for 2021)? 😅

  49. Rodrigo Martins on September 16, 2021 at 12:25 am

    Onde consigo?

  50. LTRC on September 16, 2021 at 12:27 am

    Noob here and building up my cart on banggood for my first drone. I’am practically copying this same build but saw that there are also these motors which will match the red the iFlight XING X2207 1700KV. Will these work and are they worse or better than the Emax ECO Series 2207 1700KV ?
