After several builds based on the Caddx Turtle I realized they can never be a Gopro replacement, which made me start looking for micro frames that could carry one safely. I've heard about the Squirt way before Paul Nurkkala made it trendy so it was natural that I swayed that way. The TPU ducts were a pain to print, and even when you get a successful print it's never as neat as you want it to be, but it works.

Been unlearning to fly just to fly this Squirt, because of course it flies differently than a 5" or 7" that I'm used to, even a regular 3" micro. It just flies like a heavy whoop, with more mass flying in the air, which makes for some interesting technical flying. Re-learning how to fly it in Horizon to make things more cinematic, but if tuned properly I believe you can easily fly cinematic with Acro mode.

Running T-Motors F20II 3250kv motors on 4S 1000mah which gives me around 6-7mins flight times.

The Hero 7 mount was designed by me and can be downloaded here

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..
