5 Years ago i built my first drone, it was an F450 frame with DJI Naza M lite GPS... I did not manage to put it to fly.
After lots of hours lost on trying to discover what was wrong and correct it.. i just couldn't fly.
So i QUIT!

A few months ago i saw UAV FUTURES video on how to build a 6s 115Mph Quad.. and i thought... Well, it's time to try again!
I went for Granger's build, because it looked a bit more fancy.

I ordered almost all of the components from Banggood, and everything arrived with no issues. Some came from Ebay, others from HobbyKing.

I already had the Spektrum Radio, so it was one less cost. and i was going for the Skyzone's goggles, but since i did not have to spend money on the radio, i just went Fatshark HDO.

The Build was easy to mount, and got it to fly when i first armed it.

I'm basicly learning from scratch how to Fly, and hope i can get some good videos for you guys to watch!

I know this is a little bit of an older post, but with the runcam swift 3 v2, how were you able to get it to mount on the Flywoo vampire frame? I have the frame and same camera, but they won't properly fit together( screws are too short and there is a gap that isn't big enough for the adapter that came with the camera). Otherwise your build looked beautiful.

Yeah, I had to use 2 spacers on each side and longer 2m screws, I went with 2x6mm screws and they fit perfectly.

Great thanks a million i will try the same, problem is i dont have shops with these kind of screws around me :/

No hobby shops or a home depot? You could also order them online from Amazon or some other store.

The quad looks good, but learning to fly with a 5" ?!....Hope it's going well.

It´s not been easy, already broke some Props!
And had to open the motors to clean it up.. but everyday i fly, i can see that i'm getting better.

Just props and dirt?Nice! If your progress is strictly in acro or los, then I commend you and wish you continued success. But if you are training in horizon, then you are in for some very frustrating times when you decide to switch over.

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..
