my first ultralight was with brotherhobby R4 2300KV and I liked it so much that I wanted to build a second one only I decided to also try the 2600 motors.

I still prefer the 2300KV version for its amazing efficiency and control.

also I prefer using an AIO FC such as the Asgard because it saves weight and it is much easier to install.

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.
