    best quadcopter frame for FPV

    Hi

    I have a 1.3Ghz 300mW Vtx, a RMRC 480 FPV camera, a quadrino FC, 4 turnigy plush 30A escs and 4 Avroto 770kw short shaft motors....all waiting patiently in my workshop.

    I just need a new quad frame.

    The frame needs to be light (flight time IS important), strong (b/c I will crash) and suited to FPV (landing gear, space for FPV gear)

    Any suggestions. I really want to make the ultimate FPV machine.

    juz

    Hey Juz... does this mean you will have two complete FPV rigs?

    Juz.. check out the new frames at quadcopter.co.uk.. he got some nice ones that fold and come with LED's if you want um.. Ive built a little one based on a MK frame and its taken sone serious hits.. the last one I had a motor fail and it went in to a neighbours patio window at full tilt.. quad was OK but old lady was airlifted!

    Seriously check out Geoffs new stuff..

    Yeah, I really need a second FPV ship. I put off making some attempts at the new competition in fear of crashing, because this weekend I was asked to film a stuntman sliding a truck around a race track. It rained! I need one quad that is an everyday hack and one for special ops

    I'm sure most on this forum have more than one multicopter

    Haha....Funny you say that Droider. I watched a Warthox flight with a foldable quad just last night. How big is your "little" MK machine?
    Also, not sure about using carbon fibre and aluminium in an FPV dedicated quadcopter. I do love carbon though, and need something sweet for my nice motors!

    Hi Juz..I have made mide from the 400mm MK frame with some added on bits..I have freind who has a CNC cutter so he has made me some extra plates for mounting my go pro and fpv gear. I have it in stacks that I can add or remove. I also have a tare off landing gear set and battery holder. I am using copter control and love it.. I was going to post my build as I went but thought I may just how the finished things.. What motors are you using?
