This build just about emptied my wallet - I even had to sell my transmitter to fund it! (currently looking for a cheaper replacement to get back in the air) But I love to build, probably more than flying and I'm more than happy with how this one turned out.

I wasn't happy with the 3D printables I could find online so I made my own - on thingiverse now: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3712955

The biggest challenge was mounting the Tarsier which uses M2 mounting. I used long M2 bolts with some M2 brass grommets to make them sit nicely in the M3 holes.

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..
