Nice little quick 4" X frame. I have the 5" version as well that I can swap everything over to.
The PZ0420m board cam with the 2.4 lens fits nicely and it well protected in the pod. The Bee Rotor FC has an OSD built in, but I bypass it. The FC and PDB combo has a a current sensor which I can get to Taranis telemetry.

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..
