Snake Eyes ( Gecko 4'' )

I ordered the 4'' Gecko some time back, but wasn't quite sure how I wanted to build it out. I ended up mounted the Caddx Turtle on top in a TPU mount I found on Thingiverse and will be using the Foxeer Falkor for FPV. This is in the hopes of keeping props out of view of the HD footage.
As for the motors, FC, ESC's and VTX I've used all before and will use again being some of my favorites.
I hope to get a break in the weather soon and get this thing up in the air for some HD footage.

hows the flight times with 1507 just cruising around?

Using an 850mah 4S and the V1S 4" Prop I get maybe 3-3.5min flying hard. I think cruising around I could get up to maybe 4.5-5min

For the longest time we've been limited to 3 to 4 minutes of flight and lots and lots of batteries. With more efficient motors and frame designs it's now possible to push the envelope much further. 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..
