EDITED: Added TBS Masterpilot Pro 2400kv motors

A backup quad build from parts laying around. It flies surprisingly well, 328g all in without battery. I don't see many Bangarang builds in here so hopefully this will help. A really sturdy frame, stretched X (I thought it wasn't) and skinny arms. More of a race quad frame, but still top-mountable battery. OEM 30A BLHeli_S ESCs which I can't find a link to yet. Designed and 3D-printed my own rear antenna mount.

I've broken one so far, but it took quite a beating to break them. The carbon fiber is pretty solid and does not break easily.

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..
