Super fast lightweight 3". Can't wait to get some more of the 1404-4850 Superman motors.
I like the simplicity of the all in one Zeus. I may be at the limit with the 4s and 3850 on bi props. I'm not sure I want to try tri-props on it, but for racing they are not needed since most of the throttle is in upper range anyway. Thrust test show the bi-prop has the same or more thrust with less amps at the higher range anyway.

Some laps on the track... .

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..
