My goal with this build was to build a 6S 6inch all around build. I can put on 6 inch bi blade props for some mountian cruising or put on 5 inch tri blade props for proximity and freestyle. I also like the way 6 inch carries a gopro for cinematic flying. It took some time but I finally have to tune dialed in and the build is flying reliably. With a 1300mah battery I can fly for 3-4 minutes if I'm flying hard but if I just cruise I can stretch it out to almost 7 min and cover about 4 miles of ground. All up wieght is about 745 grams.

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..
