I swore to never build something small again - OR - Awwwwww Yeah, Another FalconMultirotors Frame!

Round 1 - The First Build [3/1/18]

So I bought an old revision FC that has a voltage regulator that keeps me from using fully charged batteries. Awesome. Ordered a replacement regulator from DigiKey, we'll see how well replacing it goes.

Round 2 - The Mulligan [3/7/18]

I was impatient and found a v2 PepperFish/FuriousFPV ESC locally. Also noticed that the TinyFish FC has a current sensor but it wasn't wired up in the stack I bought, so I wired the bat connector to the FC and the ESC to the FC.

Fingers crossed but it seems to fly great. I managed to shave 1-2g off the weight while adding 2s capability, so that is a bonus.

Round 3 - Oh God, Please No [?/?/??]

On the 260mAh HV packs, ~2-3 minutes. I have a few 450mah packs on their way and I think the flight time will offset their weight.

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..
