Anyone still interested in tinyhawk mods? Wanna try one that actually makes a difference instead of just wasting more power?

Here ya go.

Get an X-acto knife and 1.5-2mm carbon, lose 6g. You gain ALOT of speed (I can easily pace cars going ~30-35mph). The increase in speed is audible. And if you don't fly like a bat out of hell you'll even pick up another 30-45s flight time.

I'll have DVR in a couple days when I've got time.

Do you have some DVR? i'd like to see, thanks! looks like an awsome mod to do.

I would. If EMAX hadn't sent me replacement board with a defective voltage regulator. It was a great mod, required surprisingly minimal re-tuning. But I'll be selling off what I still have in TH parts and building a Toothpick soon. Heck, you can just buy the frame a some carbon parts from me if you want XD I won't be needing them.

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..
