Video?

Here is the maiden flight. Needed a tune at this point. The DVR has lots of prop in the view because the camera is very low slung under the prop line.

I less concern about the props but the jello...

It's been hard in the past 6 months or so to find good 6-7" props that are jello free but they are out there, I just haven't experimented enough yet to find what works best for me. Check some FB groups like Lpng Range Hooligans and they can tell you the best 6" props to get no jello

whats the flight time like?

I've been getting 4-5 minutes on a 1500 mah 5S. It will take up to 6S

I really need to get some 2200mah. I get about 1.5km away before I have to turn around

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. 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..
