This is how i built the lightest brushless FPV quadcopter on earth 😉
I developed all the electronics on my own and I release all HW files under an open license.
With 32.4grams including the battery, this is the lightest brushless fpv quadcopter you can find. Even though it is light, it still has enough power for indoor fpv racing practice.
The whole copter uses only open source hard- and software.
You can find a flight video on one of my latest blog posts:
