After learning about the world of FPV quadcopter racing, we couldn’t wait to build our own. With the help of Lumenier and FPV quadcopter flyer Charpu, we learn about all the components needed to build a solid mini racing quadcopter for under $850, FPV kit included. Charpu helps us assemble the quadcopter and gives useful tips for first-time builders. It’s really not that difficult!

Thanks to Lumenier for providing parts for this build: www.getfpv.com

  1. Hey guys loving your content I'm new to this hobby and I'm looking to create a first-time build video on a 0 too low budget using as many salvaged pots as I possibly can thank you in advance for any help I may receive FPV 7

  2. Hey can you tell me an average price ? Like for all the components, or at least the important ones like motors, and motor drivers, gyro, accelerometer ? If it has those. Not really caring about the board
