If you're familiar with the RotorX Atom, then the RotorX Atomic Fox is also probably familiar to you. The Atomic Fox is the 5-inch version of the Atom that takes into account many of the learnings from the Atom. In a similar fashion, this build takes the Atomic Fox and converts it to a 7-inch configuration.

The Ultra Fox is not a RotorX product, but it's used with permission by RotorX and is a collaboration by Ryan Labarre, Benson Kalahar, and Andrew Reitzel. Full details about the design can be found at fancyfpv.com and you can visit my youtube channel for several videos on the RXUF.

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..
