Flipped ORI32 180 degrees and rotated -90 degs so motor pads are facing up and Lipo pads are to the rear. Also, rotated Airbot Omnibus F4 Nano V6 -90 degs so USB port is in back and 8-pin connector is in front (the same as the 8-pin connector for the ESC). Got both the ESC and FC seperately which also meant I needed to purchase the 3cm 8-pin connector seperately. Also, turned the Caddx F2 upside down and used Image Flip so I could get more camera angle without the camera connector in back making contact with the stack behind it and therefore limiting its angle. This stack in conjunction with the T Motor F15 1106 6000 kv mottors riding on the FlexRC Ascent frame is a Dream 2.5-inch Micvro!

Thanks! Flipping and rotating wasn't too bad at all. I really like the Ascent frame. It has so much room, vertically too! i was able to get the ESC, FC, Runcam DVR, VTX and RX in one stack and still not be over the top of the frame! First time I've used the Runcam DVR. i like it.

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..
