HD Deuce

When I saw Daltz was releasing this new Lil’ Deuce No Limit frame to work with brushless whoop boards, I knew it was time to jump into this world of ultra micro builds. At first I consudered a 1S build.... after I convinced myself I needed (wanted) 2S, I started wondering if this was just going to be a faster, more aerobatic version of the TinyHawk (I knew it was different, but I wondered how much more)....

Then I had a eureka moment. Why waste my time with crappy DVR? I’d build it out with HD recording. This would be my prop-guardless cinewhoop, that I could also fly like a bat out of hell when I felt like it.

To mount the Turtle v2, I settled on this mobula mount with a few minor adjustments. www.thingiverse.com/thing:3328095
The top HD/FPV pod pops off easily with three screws and two plugs.

The Tacyon 1104 7500kv are likey temporary until the Lil’ Floater 1104s are released.

Dry weight is 66g and AUW is 86g with a 350mah 2S.

May 12 Update - added Crossfire nano rx. No more drop outs.

July 7 Update - printed a new canopy. The Sanchez designed by Dave_C

Naw, its all good. Its held on by Bondic UV reactive liquid plastic. I’ve had a half dozen hard crashes on it, and no issues at all.

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..
