What type of flight times do you get?

StickyRice   May 24, 2019  

hey what kind of filament did you use for the canopy?

TPU

hmmm doesnt it get too jelly? is petg better? which between petg and tpu would you prefer?

98 or even 95 TPU isn't jelly, it's just flexible enough not to be brittle like PLA or even PETG

Also should i still put tpu spacers under the motors? does that have any effect at this size?

wklee.fpv   May 25, 2019 

I think that there is no need to add tpu spacers under that motors. for current setup, my toothpick get no vibration at all.

glad to hear! i didnt want to waste some tpu for something i wont use. Thanks!

could you please upload more pics of your mounting and of the vtx? I‘m building the same and don‘t know how to play with the various screws :)
thanks!

I just put the vtx on the fc.

Nikotttin   May 18, 2019 

thanks very much!
In the pack, I also received some M2 white spacers. did you use these between the FC and the frame or did you simply use the long screw and some rubber gromets?

How does the HBS fc work? I was looking at that one too

wklee.fpv   May 18, 2019

StickyRice   May 17, 2019

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..
