Classic 2 inch micro the X2 Elf. Adding 22mm aluminum standoffs to better fit the flight stack. This little bugger want to fly, pops off the ground with very little throttle on 2s 450 and 550mah batteries. Hell of a time getting it to fly right, had oscillations galore, ended up with custom motor mix and dropping all the PID's way down. Feels a little on the loose side right now, working on bringing the PIDs up a bit.

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..
