Gnarly FPV Primo 10X Version with GEPRC GEP-12A-F4 f411 2-4s v1.1 AIO FC/ESC, Runcam Nano 2 camera with necessary Nano 2 Primo Canopy Adaptor. Used 1103 800Kv Lil floaters motors--would not recommend these for this build. Motors are good, however, the mounting patter has only two holes (see picture below of motor bottom). This 2-hole mounting patter does not align with the holes for motors #1 & #4 on the frame. You can actually see this in the all-up-weight (AUW) picture below (i.e. with battery on scale). The motor wires for motros #1 & #4 come out of the motor facing motors #2 & #3 respectively. Only a matter of time before the get ripped out of the coils. I would suggest going with Airblade 1103 8000 Kv or Flywoo Nin NT103 7650Kv which have 4-hole mounts (which Gnarly FPV recommends on his website!) instead. Made it work with the Lil Floaters for now though and she's quite a Fun Flyer!

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..
