Recycled an old betafpv whoop canopy with a z01 cam/vtx. Had to flip the board to gain access to the usb. Had the wrong esc protocol for the maiden...fixed that and will be flying it very soon.

It flys! and it flys pretty damn well!!! I am super happy with this build. Even on 1s was pretty fun.

did the top c-clip on top of the bell get in the way of the prop?

doesnt seem too. i didnt even notice it. i switched to 65mm gemfans...will probably be switching back to the flash or a hulkie 3 blade, just suits my skill level more. the 65mm bi blades make this little thing a handful.

Nice buid. It looks like all the motor wires are red, are they all the CW version? I don't really see why Happymodel has directional brushless motors while most aren't. I wonder if they are actually directional in some way?

they are all CW. I just got all the same so the wires matched...should have went with black though I think...red matches the motor bells though.

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..
