Hats off to Armattan Pro. for re-sending this thing twice at no extra cost to me. (post office failed to notify me 2x)

Just a oneoff design, playing around with the concept of a vertical+horizontal arm members.

16mm stack space, which is enough these days for stacks like this, but no, I just transplanted some old parts and had to fit the VTX on top.

Like the re-purposed Emax foam on the arms? ...need to 3d print some.

Anyway, not the prettiest thing but Blackbox logs look amazingly vibe-free and it flies good.

is this a race build?

Thanks. Not too light. Didn't measure it, but 85 grams of carbon (per CAD model) and I'd guess 100 grams with screws and standoffs.

100g is actually pretty good for a vertical design! Top and bottom + arms are two identical plates rotated by 180° right? really cool idea!

Yep, 180d. Those plates were most of the cost, so unfortunately not an idea I'd do again.

Vertical arm frames are tough to get right! Nice custom work man. Looks like a tough beast.

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..
