Rebuilt the Gecko! I shaved down the Ori32 so it fits in the orientation best for the BAT leads. The Ori is a perfect match in terms of the connecter. No reording the wires which is nice.

Using betaflight 32/32 Multishot with 32 Khz PWM frequency

Check the second pic in the look to watch it fly with the GoPro with the old setup. That was on a 3s 850Mah so now I have 4s and will give it another shot with the new setup.:

Nice work! Do you have any video with the Hero 7 Black? I'm shocked (happily) that a Gecko can carry such a huge camera.

Clean build!

How did you shave down the Ori32? I haven't received mine yet and was researching how I would fit it on my Gecko.

just used a file! its really easy to shave down. If you really have to you might be able to use a nail file on the clippers.

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..
