AirbladeUAV Intrepid V2 3" with the Mamba Mini Flight Stack.

This is my most in-depth build to date, that being said, it wasnt overly difficult. I would highly recommend a fine tip soldering iron errr....tip.

It hasn't been airborne yet, but just git everything setup in Betaflight.

Nice, can I ask the weight with a battery? I'm thinking of this setup but possibly dual camera. I wonder if it will be under 250g?

Ill have to throw it on the scale again but i believe i was at 227g with an 850mah 3s. get rid of the leds and use biblades and i think you would be able to get it under 250g...i was going to go dual cam too but i dont think it is necessary with the turtle.

I built it with dual cam - its about 170g with a bunch of 3d printed stuff so yeah with 650mah 4s you are pretty much exactly at 250g
Will post build soon. I used 1407 brat motors and dys 3" triblade props, micro swift and caddx turtle v2. f428 stack and r9mm rx.

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..
