RX antennas are ziptied to the rear arms.

Use a fin to get better turtle mode. Brain3D sells them or you can print your own. A gopro mount will also work, this is just to lift the motors off the ground in the event of a crash because with a bottom mount battery the props can hit the ground while upside down.

Frontal impacts with the camera can cause it to shift back and knock the 4in1 connector off of the FC if you don't have a fixed camera mount, so I'd recommend printing or buying one.

I have 6 inch arms running 5 inch props.

Any issues with the camera sticking out so far? Currently building my first Floss and having the lens stick so far out is making me parinoid since I seem to break a lot of lenses.

Nope, not a single problem. Had one case where it went back into the stack and knocked my 4in1 connector off but that wasa crash directly into a flag. If you get a fixed camera mount it makes it a lot easier to prevent damage.

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..

This guide will walk you through the process of building your first FPV quad. The goal with this design was to build a low-cost, lightweight quad, yet powerful enough to safely carry a GoPro in close proximity areas. I chose these parts to minimize the amount of soldering at no cost to the quality. A typical build requires around 30 solders while this only needs 25. It's not a huge difference, but..
