This frame fit the requirement of stretch X, flight controller not part of the top plate stack, and replaceable arms. I'd like to experiment with getting the camera a little forward and lower and the VTX on the bottom of the top plate as it is on the x210 build. I'm not a huge fan of VTX antenna coming out of the top plate. The DTFc drilled out and soft mounted on o-rings seems to be doing well. I'll probably build another using a F4 board and some 4-in-1 ESC.

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..
