This was quite an interesting build as I wanted a super slammed frame but also HD/FPV-cam inside. And it worked. The Turtle-PCB fits perfectly in the front, glued to the top-plate with the included plates. Problem was reaching the Micro-SD-card slot.....here I found an extension ribbon cable (usually used with Arduinos), that exits on the top plate right in front of the lipo, the lipo actually holds the card shut while in flight. Even added a microphone to listen to the quad when flying. So far all works just fine. Weight without lipo 367gr.
And she flies just perfect, have a look at some videos.

This guide will walk you through the process of building a micro long range quad capable of flying 8-30 minutes and more than 4km. The build is moderately difficult, but with the right tools and steady hands..

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..
