I built this drone with one purpose. To race it at the FPV Racing Events Fall Classic in paris Ontario. That it did do! And it is also how long it lived, because at the end of the event I totalled it going under a 2/4.

This thing was awesome to fly, but it shall live again!

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.
