This frame was the newest version when I built it but since then they came out with another version so the Part List below is the only place where I can find a frame similar to what I have. This build was pretty much straight forward with my only complaint is the standoff being in the way of my USB plug. It is really easy to remove the standoff and the best part is that I do NOT need to loosen the other 3 to do it.

The power to weight ratio is insane, so you get some impressive punch out with a 3s lipo.

TomoQuads is awesome because they are willing to share the 3D files for there quads. They provide me some files for a legacy quad that they no longer sell too. When I bought this frame used on RCG is came with all black PLA 3D printed parts. But I wanted to give it some color so I printed my own parts with TPU. I included the Thingiverse link below if you wanted to print your own parts.

Until recently GoPros were delegated to larger quads. A typical GoPro weighs around 125g and we've only recently begun to mount them on 3" cinewhoops. Even that is a stress on the motors. Now we've got the "GoPro Lite". Remove the battery, displays and casing and you're left with a small, lightweight board and sensor. Wrap it in protective TPU casing and you've got a 30g micro GoPro. The Hero6 is..

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..
