I've changed several parts of the Black Shark to allow for 720p onboard recording and longer range. I modded the Cyclops with a lens from a Wolfwhoop AIO, but I'm still looking for the best M7 out there. Flies 5 minutes of fun on 450 Tattu, and Goes just over a mile and back. :)

How the heck did you fly fpv with the turbowing cyclops? With the latency on that thing I'd be better off flying los from a mile away lol

Honestly I see the framerate as more of an issue than latency with it. Just takes some getting used to. After a while you don't even notice it. Then you go fly something with a normal fpv cam and it feels like 120fps gaming :D

What's the weight and flight time?

45g dry, 67g all up. Odd that CNHL says those packs are 27g. I replaced the connector and mine are 21-22g. I can't imagine I took 5 grams off each pack, but my scale weighs a nickel within 0.1g

yeah i am planning on building a baby shark since it seems the electronics will be more protected. i was just trying to uage how mine would compare to yours since i am using a few of the same parts. Its good to know you can still get plenty of flight time with these lightweight micro quads.

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..
