This frame is definitely something different! Please post your impressions once you take it for a flight.

For racing I'm keeping it as light as I can to avoid destroying frames constantly. I'm flying a 2mm 5" version of the frame. The components I'm using are Hyperlite 2205 2522kv, a Bardwell V2 fc, and the racerstar/rcharlance 35a 6s esc (awesome cheap esc btw). I fly it with 1300's bottom mounted with the stack built on top of the frame like you see here. The frame itself is surprisingly configurable (can use any battery orientation you want) so I don't use the carbon fiber battery cage pieces. The 2mm version of the frame is quite strong for what it is, but don't expect it to hold up like a Rooster. I take two identical quads to race because I almost always end up breaking an arm. Arms are cheap though, and In my opinion well worth the huge advantage this frame gives you.

Thanks for sharing! Is there any particular prop you can recommend for that setup? And another question, did you get a chance to fly it against 6S quads? I hear the message that you don't actually need 6S if you get the motors, props and weight right, but it kind of feels like 6S is becoming the new 4S, so I'm wondering.

I will have to try a frame like it for racing. it looks like propwash is a non issue with the way the arms are made.

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..
