EDITED : Added Cobra CP2207 2450KV Mirror Motors + Aikon AK32 35A ESCs + AKK FX2 Ultimate VTX

This is basically an update of this earlier build https://rotorbuilds.com/build/10492
The frame is still holding up after numerous crashes, highly recommended! Am using generic OEM 30A BLHeli_S ESCs, I can't find the information online though, bought it from a local seller.

To be honest the Cobras are very underpowered for this heavy Rooster, looking to upgrade it to the 2450kv ones. 2300kv one overheats on this build, and I need to make sure not to overprop it as well. My backup motors are the DYS Samguk 2207 2600kv, those have been surprisingly good, but they sound soooooo whiny.

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..
