Hi guys,I am building my first racing drone. I thought it would be easy as it's not the first radio controlled thing I've built (electric longboard) but apparently a drone is a whole different story I finished the frame as far as I could without obstructing the electronics, but I simply don't know how to connect everything together. Although I already checked with multiple Tutorials and other resources I came to no definite conclusion, so here I am Here's 2 images of all the parts I have, do. you know how to put them together? Image 1: Image 2: It may be that the pictures contain some unnecessary parts, they're simply leftoversThank you,Drizzel
----Don't forget to select HD viewing mode for full entertainment---- The racing field was just made by my friends who team up as 'Chicken Run' Team. Try their race track for the first time and also first time flying with GoPro mounting on my quad copter. What is exciting for me about this VDO is that the GoPro was unprotected at all, no GoPro protective case, no lens protection. A simple crash is enough to damage the lens.
I never be so sure on my flip so I took off my google and try flipping by line of sight and that's work!. I reduce throttle too much that the props stop spinning during rolling so the drone can't roll further in the middle of a flip. Knowing this in mind, I can flip through google with much more confident. Note: my camera is set quite deep inside the frame so that the red tubes and some part of the frame are visible through the camera like bull's horns. That's why I named the video Bull.

In the VDO is my night practicing session during a drone festival at Queen Sirikit convention center, Bangkok, Thailand. It is my first official racing event. I can finished 3-4 laps as required in practice but when the real race comes I mostly did not finished the race. My time per lap is not good too. The best can go under 14 second per lap but my best time is 17 per laps. I learnt that there are many little things that made me not quite ready for an official race such as; not enough normally used-propellers (it's totally differ for 2-3-4 blades), use to same type of propellers all the way, better go early for a few practices before race, prepare for the worst crash and use the equipment that is easy to fix, bring spare parts, add a barrier in the front of your battery (my battery fly out of my drone once by sliding to the front), don't rush at start (for beginner), in racing they required you to have a laps caller in order to confirm the race is complete. And make sure the camera angle will not tilt on an impact. Most of the problems will be solve if you have a drone mechanic with you. And also if you do not crash at all most of the problems will not occurred.
