I built this micro endurance drone to be the ultimate lightweight flying machine. The frame is designed with weight reduction and strength in mind, whilst not sacrificing aerodynamics. When used with a high capacity lithium ion cell it is capable of hovering continuously for 50+ minutes and performs well in moderate winds.
All of the components press fit into the frame so no glue or screws are required, which saves time, effort and weight.
Link to required components and full build instructions:
- Weight when assembled excluding battery: 48g
- Hover time (using LG MJ1 cell): 52 minutes
- Thrust: 160g
