A couple of weeks ago i had a walk in the park and ran into two guys who where flying mini quads on a field with a lot of tree’s and obstacles. I found it quite impressive and I could not resist the urge to have a talk with them to check out the hardware they where using. To make an impression of what they where doing check out the youtube movie they made with a Go-Pro on one of the quads: I take no credit for this insane flying. This is one of the guys i met at the park! I had the opportunity to watch his flying with a second pair of FPV glasses. This made me very enthusiastic to get started with FPV flying myself. And i ordered myself a 250 frame from Hobbyking.com.

This is the unbuild frame with the motors and BESC. Below you will find a build report of the 250 mini-frame and the soldering of the BECS to the integrated circuit board.

I am using Multistar brushless motors and 12a afro BECS for this project. This was a set bought together.

Al the frame parts in the kit and the integrated power distribution board where i will be soldering the ESC’s on. But lets start with building the frame to get an impression of the spots and spaces where all the electronics will be placed. The pictures are quite self explaining so enjoy the ride.

Putting everything together with the esc’s soldered on. And ready to mount on the Naze32 flightcontroller, the receiver and the FPV circuit board.
