Ready to jump into the world of first-person-view (FPV) drone racing? Building your own mini quad is a good way to get your first rig while learning the fundamentals of multirotor flight and piloting, as well as brushing up on your electronics and soldering skills.

A quadcopter is the most common configuration and is widely supported by airframes tailored to racing, which require extra durability during crashes. This build is based on the Hovership (which can be purchased or downloaded and 3D printed from hovership.com), but is applicable to many FPV racers.
