I actually cried today when my dear old dad handed me the digital microscope dvr .
I have poor eyesight and struggle with inspecting the boards and even reading the silk screening .
this thing is awesome and cheep .
I will also post how i make my own corrective lenses for goggles when my new skyzones show if anyone is interested
No 5s pax yet.
Crashed and broke a shaft.
The consistant granular nature of the fracture face indicates instentacious catastraufic stress failure.
No indication of prior cracking or fatigue stresses.
Hardness measurement and metalurgical analisys is beyond my resources also the scope is not strong enough to detremine the grain structure of the fractured surface .but the distortion of the shaft where in contact with the bearing shell indicates some form of heat treatment to reduce the brittleness of the carbon steel shaft (grade if alloy unknown but is highly magnetic)

Dificult and it doesnt help that i am verry lightly boned and my scull is on the small side of normal making wearing goggles dificult. i will be doing a post on my custom faceplate and lenses.
Cheers for all the likes etc

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..
