This started as a Bflight 210; the rest is a saga of unfortunate events that led me to replace the camera, frame, motors, ESC, and eventually switched back to 1 bflight motor.

It's not pretty but flies alright when it doesn't desync.

A scary build you can't rely on

Only the frame ensures most of the hardware stays protected

3/10 would not recommend

But it's mine and I love it

Love how far your camera lens is sticking over the frame! Great beater!

The lens is well tucked in behind the titanium cage; what you're seeing is the lens hood I made to improve contrast on bright days ;)

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
