True HD Brushless Whoop

I have this prototype frame made a while ago and I never really found a good use for it. Then comes the HD brushless whoop wave. But what I really don't like is that people have been using is their Beta75X and slap on a HD camera. The 40mm prop on 2S simply can't offer enough power to carry such a heavy rig. So I decided to make my own with 1.9 inch prop. This frame was made to accommodate up to 2.5 inch but now with the 1.9 inch guard, it leaves some room to put the camera in between the ducts. PERFECT!

I use parts that I have lying a round, but my intended setup would use a HGLRC Zeus with a small VTX and a Caddx Turtle or Split Mini single board. That way you can really keep the stack low, and possibly under the duct.

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..
