Most compact fpv setup ever

Since I traveled with my tiny mosquito for the last 4 weeks through the Philippines I want to show you how compact a full field fpv setup can be.

  • Mosquito 130mm racer
  • Eachine EV100 goggles
  • Taranis X9D+
  • 4x lipo 3S 800mAh
  • 2x lipo 4S 650mAh
  • Eachine ROTG01 receiver for spotters
  • Taranis battery
  • Eachine battery for goggles
  • Camera bag from „hama“
  • ISTD battery checker

Thats it!

Find also below an example what video quality is possible with this 2130gr field setup. What’s missing is tools for maintenance, a charger and spareparts. But this depends partly on the skills of the pilot and the rigidness of the frame. I didn’t even killed one part of the racer in the last 4 weeks. I also didn’t use tools for maintenance as it was flying like a charm.

You can shrink down the fieldsetup with less batteries. But for longer flight sessions these 6 lipos had been far enough in my opinion.

Baseplates

Just redesigned the frame to make it lighter, stronger and 4s capable… Give me a couple of hours and there is another new version available.

goodbye regulations

Due to the fact the FAA introduced a new weight limit a while ago (which is at exactly 250gr) all UAV´s heavier than 250gr had to be registered – all below are low risk UAS (https://www.dropbox.com/s/t8o4zaojpmwg3qs/Defining%20a%20Lowest-Risk%20UAS%20Category.pdf?dl=0)

Ok, they took these rules back in June 2017 but at that time also many countries worldwide jumped on their references and the 250gr limit. In a lot of these countries there is no way to prevent being forced to register or to mark your small quad with address and name. In addition to that there are a lot of rules which make it quite uncomfortable to practice our hobby.

But what if there is a solution for all your concerns? What if there is a frame which has the same stability like your oldschooled 5” or bigger? What if there is a frame which has same speeds, or even more acceleration like your beloved quadracer?

Most of you will say: “Yeah, we know there are models with less weight than 250g but you have restrictions like, flight times, bad stability and of course NO GOPRO for HD footage!”

I will answer: Yes, you´re partly right but nowadays there are solutions for your concerns without limitations.

How?… and here comes the conclusion:

Since August 2017 I’ve used my free time working on a ground braking frame design which will provide exactly what I described above and even more:

  • a setup below 250gr (frame less than 50gr)
  • compact size (136mm motor-motor diagonal)
  • a stable design which can handle hard crashes and stress
  • fully HD coverage
  • efficient setup
  • easily to maintain
  • all components highly protected
  • OSD
  • battery position should be as safe as possible

All this is only possible due to some facts: really lightweight design, state-of-the-art materials, super compact size, vertical to motor axis and tilted arms and much experience in frame designs.

First prototypes flew and gave tremendous results in flight times more than I expected. A drawback a few weeks ago wasn´t really a drawback but results in redesigning the frame from the scratch and deleting all weak points but with all benefits the frame already had. Today I´m able to introduce the “mosquito”
