FullSpeed Toothpick: http://bit.ly/2PAEIZl
Summary of the FullSpeed Toothpick:
Good performance with good quality assembly. Electronics seem reliable however FullSpeed has had ESC failure issues in the past. This is a brand new ESC and on this quad, the ESC performance is not the best but acceptable. In this size category, there is no best ESC. All the ones I’ve tested perform mediocre at best and this is no different. Throttle pumps yield some dipping and it’s very difficult to get a good tune on the quad as a result. Additionally, the longer weight distribution on the pitch axis also eats into the control performance of the quad for a number of reasons. The stretched X layout helps with managing the weight distribution in this case and overall performance is still very good. I have some concerns about the reliability of the Caddx camera on board based on my personal experience with Caddx cameras however the view is glorious for a quad of this size. I’ve pointed out many genitives but overall, the quad performs well and based on everything FullSpeed tells me, should be reliable. I would say that it’s currently the best option in the ‘Toothpick build style’ class.

Caution: Very high failure rate of the AIO board they produce. This one is supposed to have an updated version but hard to trust.
If you can get a hold of JUST the FullSpeed frame or something similar, I would recommend the following parts:

Some sort of canopy re-design will be needed to fit this camera but the weight reduction is going to be a significant benefit.

Hold off on 220X motors for now. There is a bug in BLheli/BF that makes them act a little weird unfortunately. 🙁
Sub $200 5″ build that’s still good:
