  • Both indicated frames have large “pod”, that makes building process easier. Also, they allow using a HD Camera (like GoPro) on top of it, with row to put the battery on top of drone. Smaller frames requires the batter mounted under the drone in the case you want to use a HD camera on top of it, and it’s not a good idea when you’re a novice pilot. You’ll probably damage the battery during a landing. Always prefer to mount the battery on top of the drone.
  • The 4-in-1 ESC indicated here replaces the PDB provided by both frame kits. But on Martian II frame, the PDB need to be present because it is a structural part of frame.


This parts list was made to deliver a optimal quadcopter cost-effective option, a machine that is good, durable, easy to build and not much expensive. This mini quad can fly using 3S or 4S battery, and can be used for freestyle and for racing (but it’s more capable of freestyle due to the frame options provided).

The total cost of this drone (minus radio transmitter, battery and other optional accessories listed) is near US$ 190.00.
