EDIT: I was tired of snapping arms, I transplanted this build into a MORE Massive Droner Frame build.
This 3" build is my first. I fried a few things in the process but I have an OK finished product. The prop clearance is extremely tight, I believe this leads to a little prop wash that I will never be able to tune out but its not too bad.

I fried two Unify Nanos doing the exact same thing both times. It would not boot up properly with an orange flashing light, I later found out that it was somehow getting into pit mode. I would test the voltage with a multimeter and the pads were so tight that I shorted it. I'm very happy with the AKK 20x20 Ultimate.

Another mishap was the original camera OSD control board didnt seem to work, which meant I couldnt get rid of the cam OSD. RDQ refunded me, I bought the new V3 and it worked perfectly.

The Hero6 is..

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..
