This is my newest racer, I swapped over to 6S and am having no regrets doing so.

The frame is my custom designed frame, the Sailfish 220 SX, but flipped upsidedown with a pod designed by Mewo FPV. I love how it handles with a mid-mount battery like this.

I have not had a negative experience with any of the parts that I used in this build and highly recommend them.

Here is some DVR of it in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2oQdtwi1KaY&feature=youtu.be (dont mind the uncalibrated ammeter...)

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..
