My take on a budget 5" build. I'm super happy about it!! So pretty and flies really well.

The first version of this build was based on the danish Lil Mofo Prototype though: http://fpvgear.dk/drone/rammer/lil-mofo/
Wanted to try the Awesome frame instead, and I'm super happy with the more freestyle-oriented layout being more H-shaped.

On the Awesome frame. There's something weird in the production. One of the 4 holes for mounting the arms is too big which makes it really hard to mount the arm in a robust way. I'd inqure Banggood about this before buying. Photos of the frame: https://photos.app.goo.gl/DVXFspFJTdECeQmc8

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..
