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.

Thanks!

The iFlight XL5 V3 is a fantastic freestyle frame for the price. It features chamfered edges on some very nice quality carbon fiber. My goal for this build was to use high quality components at a relatively low price. Not only that, but I managed to reduce the number of solder points to the bare minimum. I've never built such a plug-in-play quad! The flight controller has an integrated VTX and doesn't..

Update! Happymodel has released a new V2 Frame which uses a more durable plastic. The Happymodel Mobula7 is one of those rare treats to hit the micro scene. Countless models hit the market every month, but this one just happens to check all the boxes. It's a 2S brushless micro with a 75mm motor stance.
