My very first fpv quadcopter build.

I enjoyed a lot building this and looking forward to the next build. I'm still not sure if I want to build a 3" which of I have the frame already or do I want to build another 5" freestyle kwad with top mounted battery.

All the parts are available on Banggood.

You can find me on Instagram.

With a naked GoPro or the SMO 4k you can capture some great stabilized footage. In this guide I'll show you..
