Lost this build in a water landing. Will be building a similar one.

This is my first 6S build. Took a while to get my hands on some of these particular POPO motors, but finally found some in stock. It was a super easy build compared to the tighter race builds I'm used to doing. All ready to go, just needs to be maidened, which is hopefully this weekend if weather cooperates.

Arm bumpers, SMA holder, and GoPro mount designed by XeroVolume. I did the cam mount/guard, since the Predator v3 that I like flying sticks out a bit past the front of the frame. Front camera mount is Ninjatek Armadillo TPU, the rest is YOYI TPU and NinjaTek Cheetah TPU.

They're not the type you're familiar with, although I did print those originally with the soft mounts on top. These have built in skids on the bottom so the frame won't scrape when landing on concrete. I have separate TPU soft mounts on the top. Here's the design. https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3618891
