The SuperG Plus is currently my favorite build! 7" props have a deep, stealthy sound, barely audible beyond 75 meters.

The SMA+GPS mount is a remix of FPV_vibe's design, edited to accommodate the 26mm long Matek SAM-M8Q GPS module. I also increased height of the SMA mount by 2mm to avoid pigtail collision with the lower deck.

Cruising flight time easily reaches 11+ minutes from a 5S/1800mAh pack, and 6+ minutes from 4S/1300mAh.

Could you share a link to the STL for the 900MHz dipole mount?

The Immortal T holder shown above was actually half of a broken print found here:

I've since moved to this two part design: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3715865

What's wrong with the first immortal T + vtx holder you listed?

jseaber   Aug 28, 2019 

The pictured holder broke right after printing, so the VTX mount portion was destroyed. The antenna mount was not very stable.

Long story short, this quad is at the bottom of a lake :-(. I rebuilt with Airblade's ballmount Immortal T holder:

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..
