hows the motors? i plan to get the same but i feel ilike theyre too overkill for my 3" freestyle quad (also 4s). Flight times on that 650mah? cant wait for a video :D

Motors are sweet! Flight time will depend on style (how aggressive your style is). The way I fly, I usually get around 4.5-5 minutes out of them

You added a mic? What for?

I like live audio of the motors while flying. Its more immersive, more fun, and actually when you're listening to the response of the motors to your stick movements it helps with throttle management (altitude control). I like to use external mic's for this as opposed to internal mic's on camera or VTX just because the external ones seem to work better (that's the only job the compoennt is responsible for). So, I'm always looking for VTXs which have an "audio input solder pad". There's a few of them. The one I'm using for this build has it and is also an 800 mW VTX. It all works good together. Don't know if you're familiar with live audio setup or not, however, if you're interested I've got a video on it entitled "MICRO FPV DRONE LIVE AUDIO SETUP" on my youtube channel. Happy Flying Friend!

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..
