DRONE RACING INTERNATIONAL FPV – DIY Build Kit Opinions
Tiny trainer is the easiest build I’ve ever done. Solder pads are small but its so easy to build it makes up for it Joshua
The tiny trainer is better for learning to fly on but it is not an easy build. Bardwell kit should be pretty idiot proof and give a great education John
Depends on the level of soldering ability. Tiny Trainer is a great little quad, flies well, but it is not an easy build. Having built 30+ 5″ quads over 2 years, and having what I would say pretty good soldering ability, I struggled on my Tiny Trainer. When pads are smaller than the tip of a ballpoint pen tip, you have to be point, literally, with your soldering ability. However from a durability, quality of flying, and how cool they look (especially if you deck ’em out with LED’s), Tiny Trainer is still an amazing little quad to have Tom
I personally started with tiny whoops Curtis
I love my Rotor Riot cl1/hd1 builds. Still going strong over 1 year and I learned on them also Katrina
