I wanted to build a lightweight 2S 2.5" HD freestyle copter.

It started off with 0802 motors. It was ok, but i wanted a bit more oomph so I added a 1103 version which I do prefer.

My frame is designed to be printed in polycarbonate - in which it's indestructible. However I know that printing in PC is beyond the reach of many - so I've started adding slightly modified versions of my frames that are sturdier to be printed in nylon-cf and possibly ABS ,(I've tested nylon-cf and it's great! I don't print in ABS, but I'm hoping it's still good). I've not yet got around to adding a sturdier version of this frame - if anyone is interested let me know and I'll get off my backside and finalise and upload it.

How many amps do you draw with this motor/prop combo?

Some flying footage to show?

A bit too shakey still and still needs a tune.
I've also just replaced the camera holder printed in TPU rather than PC - not had a chance to fly it yet to see if that helps or makes it worse!

Nice! Thanks a lot! I want to print it in PolyMax PLA that's very strong for a PLA.

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..
