Scored a free bonus frame from Rotorious and cannibalized a few parts for this mini monster. My last build was 3" and it's amazing the difference 1" makes in flight characteristics: Power, speed, and agility. With proper tuning, stick feel is very precise. I look forward to more time with this one.

The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..

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..
