3D printed the frame while waiting for it to be cut by Armattan Productions to plan the layout. This was a complicated build due to the oversized 20x20 boards of the Airbot stack. Mounted them rotated 90 degrees in the end to allow me to fit the VTX and Turtle board in the second stack position.
Have upgraded to the glass Turtle lens which was a decent upgrade.
There is a small SPDT switch which allows me to switch between the Turtle and the Monster. The Monster has a significantly better FPV feed to the Turtle.

Do you have a link to the TPU adapter?

The xt60 and antenna mount, looks very useful. Would be excellent if you are able to share the model (the STL file), thanks.

Haha no idea who Ann is! And yeah I had some stickers cut because they were on offer. Thanks for the comment on the XT60 holder!

yeah its on the quad itself. i only use it to set up the angle. like i said in the build, i reqlly dislike the FPV feed from the turtle so i never use it in flight.

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..
